National Bank of Pakistan Contributes for Upgradation of Burns Centre

Karachi: National Bank of Pakistan is always at fore front when it comes to playing a role for the betterment of the society in one way or the other. Recently the Bank has made significant contribution for the up gradation of Burns Centre, located at Civil Hospital, Jubilee Block, Karachi.

NBP’s contribution will help Burns Centre in upgrading the machinery and equipments which are used extensively to treat the poor patients coming from the cities and the remotest areas of Pakistan and also from the neighbouring countries.

The department manages approximately 20,000 patients per year, with an average of around 500-600 in-patients with severe burns. The Burns Centre provides diagnostic and treatment facilities completely free of cost to those poor and needy burn patients who cannot afford the extremely high treatment costs.

National Bank of Pakistan realized the need and importance of this centre and contributed for the purchase of machinery and equipment for the Burns Centre.

NBP’s Senior Executive Vice President / Group Chief, Mr. Shahid Anwar Khan presented a cheque to Director Burns Centre, Mr. Zubair Ahmed.
