Indus Kay Sitaray — the hospital-based school of the Indus Hospital & Health Network (IHHN) for its pediatric patients – held its fifth graduation ceremony at the Korangi Campus on September 21, 2021.
Fifteen students graduated in a festive ceremony that saw each child receive a bag filled with stationery items, graduation certificates, and a gold medal for their achievements. The students were dressed in a traditional graduation gown and cap and beaming from ear to ear as, one by one, their names were called out to receive their graduation presents.
The students come from all across Pakistan and neighboring countries. This time around, eight of the students were from Afghanistan. All the students who graduated are cancer patients.
Dr. Abdul Bari Khan, CEO of IHHN; Dr. Shamvil Ashraf, Director of Pediatric Oncology; and Dr. Muhammad Fareeduddin, Senior Consultant and Chair, Pediatric Services, spoke at the graduation ceremony and presented each child with their graduation certificate and gifts.
Dr. Bari was pleased with the progress made by Indus Kay Sitaray, as it had achieved its fifth graduation ceremony since its inception three years ago.
“Seeing these children make this wonderful achievement puts a smile on all our faces, and I thank the staff, teachers, and doctors who worked together to make this all possible for our children.”
At the ceremony, Dr. Fareeduddin and Dr. Shamvil also spoke, expressing their gratitude to the IHHN management, multiple departments, and dedicated faculty who worked closely with the children to give them. The ceremony wrapped up as the parents, faculty, staff, and management applauded the children for their outstanding achievements.
