The Pakistan Development Foundation has adopted hearing impaired children of tribal district Kurram (including Hangu, Thal and Parachinar) for treatment. These children have received hearing aids from PDF in the first phase. However, in second phase they will receive free health care and speech therapy for six months, where-after their listening and speaking abilities will be developed. In this connection, a ceremony was held here Friday in which Begum Corps Commander Peshawar Dr Fatima Shaheen was the chief guest.
Besides others the Chairman PDF, Muhammad Bilal Sethi, Senator Dr. Mehar Taj Roghani, Pro-Vice Chancellor Islamia College University, Professor Dr Noushad Khan, Commandant CMH and a large number of civil and military officers were also present. The chief guest and Chairman of Pakistan Development Foundation distributed hearing aids among children.
The gesture sparked ample interest in them and cherishing moments were witnessed by the audience. Three underprivileged bright students of different universities were awarded with scholarship cheques for their higher education under the banner of PDF Educate Pakistan Project. Speaking on the occasion Begum Commander XI Corps, Fatima Shaheen appreciated the initiatives of PDF.
