Umer Sharif’s hospital to be inaugurated soon
KARACHI: The construction of 200-bed hospital being built by famed Pakistani comedian Umer Sharif in city’s Orangi Town area will be inaugurated soon.
‘The Maa Hospital’ will treat patients free-of-charge, said Mr. Sharif while addressing a presser at the under-construction hospital today.
Sharif, who enjoys global fame for his versatility in comedy, underlined that the hospital will play vital role in treating women patients.
He said a separate space has been allocated at the hospital for artists who are not provided with medical treatment.
He appealed to philanthropists and affluent people to donate for the social cause so that the hospital could have all facilities for treatment of the poor.
