Pakistan has been a controversial topic of discussion time and again, be it the political turmoil it finds itself surrounded in, or the misogynistic way the country has been represented to the outer world, the country, unfortunately, has gained a difficult reputation amongst countrymen far and wide. However, since the mainstream media fails to report the important updates on the Pakistani government, that doesn’t stop one man from making an important difference to the diaspora there.
Mariyam Bashir Dawood Building
Bashir Dawood, an academician himself and an active supporter of the well-known philanthropic bashir dawood Foundation, has contributed tantamount aid and massive assistance to medical students and medical research. Besides contributing to Pakistan’s first-ever specialized organ transplant centre, he has also opened numerous doors for the integration of multiple surgical amenities into the University Hospital in Karachi. The hospital has the best in house facilities with top notched surgical suites, offering unparalleled Medicare for a variety of health issues.
The Aga Khan University Hospital is also recognized as one of the only medical institutions outside the North American continent to house this equipment, and through the generous donations of Bashir Dawood, the Neurological department at the university has acquired a Neurobionics Exosome, Penetero Microscope, and a Deep Brain Stimulation device.
Bashir Dawood and his wife Mariam Dawood are names synonymous with leading the education initiative in Pakistan by supporting schools and colleges, thereby investing in leadership in Pakistan. Their endeavors have borne fruit with students maturing into world class citizens and taking the initiative ahead, one student and college at a time.
