Lollywood actress Meera, motivated by the Imran Khan’s (Pakistani cricketer turned Politian) most honorable effort of constructing Pakistan’s one and only free cancer hospital “Shaukat Khanum” in Lahore. Now Meera had decided to build its own charitable hospital in her ancestral town Haroonabad.
Meera admits to following Imran Khan’s footsteps by opening up a free cancer hospital in Haroonabad for the needy people. Nowadays she is busy to raise funds for the construction of charity hospital in her own area.
Meera said in an Interview that took place at Pearl Continental Hotel:
It wasn’t really my dream to open a hospital, since my family has been pressurising me to get married.
She says: It just happened accidentally. I was recently on a tour of the US and Canada where I met with the doctors’ association. They wanted to support me in this cause. I never knew people would trust me so much and support my cause.
The tear appears in Meera eyes during the Interview:
Meera said: I never had the confidence in me to do this but the respect that people have given me is overwhelming. Their positive response is what encouraged me.”
Meera admits to following Imran Khan’s footsteps by opening up a free cancer hospital in Haroonabad for the needy people.
Imran Khan is definitely an inspiration behind my hospital project. Pakistan needs more Imran Khans in other fields, too. My hospital will also provide free cardio services to the impoverished people of Haroonabad.
If you look at the West, a dog has a respectful life there, so does a cat! But here we don’t even value a human’s life. Imran Khan is right in saying that we don’t love ourselves enough.
