Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centres (SKMCH&RC) management on Thursday categorically refuted and rejected a news item that donations to SKMCH&RC had been diverted to other causes.

It stated in issued press release that SKMCH&RC in Lahore and Peshawar were established with the mission to provide state-of-the-art and comprehensive cancer treatment services for all patients, irrespective of their ability to pay.

Recently, it was alleged in a news item in a section of the media that donations to SKMCH&RC had been diverted to other causes.

The management of SKMCH&RC strongly and categorically refutes this statement. All donations re-ceived are recorded and all donors are issued a formal receipt that can be traced back to each individual donation. We receive donations from within Pakistan and from overseas, and we are formally registered as a charity in many countries and jurisdictions.

The records of all donations to Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital are maintained and all our financial records in Pakistan and overseas are duly audited by independent third parties to ensure compliance with all applicable local regula-tions.
