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.

The medical professionals include Dr Yugal Kishore Mishra and Dr Neeraj Awasthy and they will be focusing on children with atrial septal defect.

@ Syed - You want Kashmir because Pakistan has 'K' in its spelling. What a stupid argument. You have 'A' and would therefore want Afghanistan? What you really deserve is Taliban (and you have a 'T' for that!!)
