GCU holds blood donation campaign for cancer patients


April 11, 2019

LAHORE: The students and faculty members of the Government College University, Lahore have donated almost 258 pints of blood for cancer patients.

The blood donation drive was organised by the GCU Blood Donor Society (GCU-BDS) in collaboration with the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCH&RC), Lahore.

Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah, GCU Vice-Chancellor, visited the camp and appreciated the efforts of the BDS members who donate more than 1,500 pints of blood every year for the patients suffering from cancer.

Pakistan Yoga Council Patron Riaz Khokhar, Yoga Instructor Muhammad Ijaz and GCU-BDS Advisor Dr Babar Naseem Aasi were also present.

workshop: A training workshop was held with regard to the Punjab Police Development Management System (PPDMS).

More than 100 building incharges from all Punjab participated in the workshop chaired by IG welfare and Finance Rao Sardar Ali Khan. The building incharges of RPO, DPO, CTD, Special branch, PHP, Investigation and other sections of Punjab Police participated in it. The participants were not only made aware of use of the software of PPDMD but also given training of PC-I so that all expenses of renovation and newly-constructed building of Punjab police might be archived in a professional way. In this way, the funds of the department may be utilised for construction purpose instead of wasting the funds in any miscalculated estimate. In the light of the directions given earlier by the inspector general of police, Punjab, all the development data of Punjab police has been uploaded onto the PPDMS.

With this development, any development project of Punjab police can easily be seen by the officers with a single click of button. It will also help improve transparency and monitoring of the projects besides saving precious time.
