Shan Foods joined hands with Indus Hospital & Health Network (IHHN) as one of the key sponsors and participating team at the 2nd IHNN annual Corporate Cricket Championship to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer treatment.
The two-day Corporate Cricket Championship is an annual initiative by IHHN as a means to gather corporate community to support their mission to provide free-of-cost quality healthcare to the people of Pakistan.
Pakistan has a vulnerable position in terms of cancer treatment. About 8,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year, 50% of which have no access to treatment owing to a lack of specialised oncology centres while 70% do not complete treatment.
Shan Foods, in addition to sponsoring 2nd IHNN annual Corporate Championship event, also participated as a playing team at the tournament where its employees played against teams from other participating organizations in an exciting cricket match for the cause of ensuring pediatric cancer patients, regardless of their socioeconomic status, a chance at healthy life.
All proceeds from the tournament will be donated to ensure provision of complete treatment of pediatric cancer patients.
Maria Rashdi, Head of Corporate Communications and PR Shan Foods, said, “Shan Foods is pleased and honored to support Indus Hospital in its fight against pediatric cancer.
Easy access to affordable and quality healthcare is a right of every individual. This is very encouraging to see the entire corporate sector come together for the cause. We appreciate IHHN efforts for it.
Shan Foods will always stand by the cause and is committed to contribute towards the health and wellbeing of our children.”Expressing his appreciation for Shan Foods’ contribution to making the tournament and its mission successful, Haider Rizvi, Senior Corporate Relationship Manager Indus Hospital & Health Network, said “Cancer is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among children and adolescents.
With our vision to provide excellence-driven healthcare services free for all, IHHN is committed to ensuring access to complete treatment to pediatric cancer patients with the global goal of reducing childhood cancer mortality.
