Present on the occasion were Provincial Minister Ejaz Alam, MNAs and MPAs and a large number of children. Chairperson Child Protection and Welfare Bureau Sarah Ahmed welcomed the Health Minister. Children presented skits and performance before the guests.

The Health Minister said, “I congratulate chairperson Child Protection and Welfare Bureau for organizing a great event on Children’s Day.

The Child Protection and Welfare Bureau is taking good care of children requiring support. The Health Department is eager to provide services for these children.

Punjab is developing state of the art mother and child hospitals for mothers and children. Children of 12 years or above registered with the Child Protection and Welfare Bureau shall be administered Corona vaccine on priority.

I appreciate Chairperson Sarah Ahmed for working on the education and skill development of these children. From 31st December, Sehat Sahulat Cards shall be distributed to all 29.3 million families of Punjab. Taking care of children requiring such support is a great service to the nation.”

In the meanwhile the minister reviewed the beautification work of the park at UC 60, Nehru Park in NA 125 here on Saturday. Present on the occasion were Abdul Ghafoor Pappu, Asghar Gujjar, Ali Rasheed and others.

The DG PHA apprised the Minister of the work on beautification of the Park in UC 60. The Health Minister said, “The beautification work in all 33 parks of the NA-125 shall be completed within the next six months.

For a clean environment in NA 125, all parks are being beautified. Similarly, a new sewerage system is being developed very fast for the supply of clean water for the people of NA-125.

As a worker of Prime Minister Imran Khan, I am struggling for the best possible services to the people of the constituency. The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government is spending public money on the welfare of the public.

Inshallah, the party shall be able to stand tall based on performance. I appreciate DG PHA for supporting the beautification initiative in the parks of NA-125.

Prime Minister Imran is endeavoring to change the fortune of our generations. Our efforts are directed at provision of top-quality healthcare services in Punjab.” The residents of the area thanked the Health Minister for initiating the welfare initiatives in the area.
