Shaukat Khanum Hospital

She has been collecting donations for the Shaukat Khanum Hospital for 22 years and she was with the party for almost 18 years.There was no woman in the party at the time.When I moved to Bahrain, I was introduced to Imran Khan by my brother, Chico Jahangir who was his long time friend from London. I held a fundraiser for the hospital at my house in Bahrain and was really impressed by Imran's passion to serve needy Pakistani cancer patients through this medical facility. Since then, I remained involved and helped organize many such events.
