A fundraising dinner to aid young cancer patients looked more like a kitty party.
The event was held on April 15th at The Imperial in Karachi to benefit Children Cancer Foundation Pakistan Trust. The organization supports The Children Cancer Hospital, which funds treatment for young cancer patients from impoverish back grounds across Pakistan.
Reshma Tabani, one of the volunteers for the organization, said: “As a member of a V-team of the hospital, we did this fundraiser to create awareness about the hospital based in the middle of Karachi and to support it financially.”
The hospital’s budget was Rs75 million last year. This year’s projection is Rs120 million. “There is a donor fatigue and because of that, we need to do high-end fundraisers like this. People are involved in so many other causes and [then the question arises] how do you get people involved in your cause?” Tabani said.
Another volunteer organizer of the event, Zartaj Subhani, was all praise for the hospital’s V-team and said that they contributed “greatly for the cause”.
The event concluded as the children walked the ramp and we hope the proceeds from the fundraiser will be treated with transparency.
