Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar has said that those who serve humanity are remembered in history, not those who owned palaces, wealth and titles.
“The passion and sincerity with which philanthropists are working in Pakistan, especially the health and education sector is an example for the world to follow.”
Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar was speaking after laying the foundation stone of Malik
Meraj Khalid School in memory of former caretaker prime minister Malik Meraj Khalid at Barki Road Lahore.
All the cost of this project will be borne by the Punjab Governor, Gohar Ijaz, Mian Talat, Anwar A Ghani from Charitable organization Friends of Lahore and other philanthropists. Chairman Akhuwat foundation Dr Amjad Saqib also announced Rs5 million for the project.
President Anjaman Ikhwan-e-slam Rana Mohammad Mansha, SVP Ch Shafaat Hussain, Mohammad Usman Hamza and others were also present at the occasion.
Addressing the inaugural ceremony and talking to media persons, Ch Sarwar said that all members associated with Friends of Lahore organization always stepped forward in difficult times for people and for other charitable works.
He said that late Malik Meraj Khalid served in big offices including the office of caretaker PM of Pakistan but his only mission in life was to help the needy, destitute and serve humanity.
We will continue his mission and today we laid the foundation stone of Malik Meraj Khalid School.
The facilities provided in this school will be at par with the facilities provided in any other top charitable institute.
The governor said that his mission in life is also to serve humanity. With two hospitals and schools under the banner of Sarwar foundation we are providing health and educational facilities to needy people and also providing safe drinking water to millions of people daily.
