How so?

Over the years, Al Shifa Eye Trust has been reaching out and helping on the social front through their various donation campaigns.

Despite humble beginnings, he envisioned and meticulously planned for various developmental phases. These efforts materialized with the establishment of four modern eye care hospitals in Rawalpindi, Sukkur, Kohat, and Muzaffarabad. A fifth hospital in Chakwal reached completion in 2021.
