Quetta: Social Media activists in Balochistan are all set to trend #ShaukatKhanuminBalochistan on twitter from 8 PM to Midnight, on Saturday.
Purpose of this campaign is to bring the issue of need of Shaukat Khanum Hospital to the attention of Imran and getting his response on this matter.
Imran Khan recently kicked off the fund raising campaigns for Shaukat Khanum Hospital Karachi through TV ads. Similar hospitals have already been established in Lahore and Peshawar.
Rubina Ibrahim Zehri, Social Media Ambassador of Balochistan Voices will be leading the campaign. Civil Society Balochistan, Balochistan Social Media Forum and Quetta Online would also be part of the campaign.
Following Message is being circulated by activists for the campaign:
First Hajira, then Sheh Mureed and Rehan Rind and the list goes on and on. There is a rise in reported cases of cancer in Balochistan. Still there are no proper treatment facilities of cancer in the province. A Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital in Balochistan is a best available solution. Therefore, on Saturday from 8 PM to Midnight, social media activists in Balochistan would carry out a campaign using #ShaukatKhanuminBalochistan. The aim of this campaign would be to bring this demand to attention of Imran Khan. This campaign in no way supports PTI or Imran Khan on political grounds and it’s purely conducted on humanitarian grounds.
