Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCH&RC) collects hides of sacrificial animals on Eid-ul-Adha to supplement the financially supported treatment of deserving cancer patients. Preparations are underway to organise this year’s nation-wide hide collection campaign.
Hide collection camps will be set up in all the major cities of Pakistan including Dera Ghazi Khan, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Multan, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, and Sialkot. All citizens can easily donate hides of sacrificial animals at these camps and support the noble life-saving mission of SKMCH&RC.
It is important to donate hides in a timely manner because heat and improper storage in plastic bags can significantly reduce the quality of the hide as well as its market value.
