SUKKUR: A one-day heart camp is being organised in Sukkur on Saturday, when cardiac consultants and surgeons from India will be providing free-of-charge check-up and advice to patients.
While the city has hosted many free medical camps, this is the first time that one is being organised in Sukkur for a free heart check-up.
The camp is being jointly organised by the Sukkur Hindu Panchayat and Shadhani Darbar Hayat Pitari. Sukkur Hindu Panchayat president Mukhi Eshwar Makheja told The Express Tribune that this camp is being organised keeping in mind the rise in heart disease cases, especially among children.
Makheja added that famous cardiac consultants and surgeons from the Fortis Escorts Heart Institute in New Delhi, India, will be performing the check-ups.
