KARACHI: The Sindhi Association of North America (Sana) on Tuesday presented the ‘lifetime achievement award’ to renowned surgeon Dr Adibul Hasan Rizvi for his matchless service to humanity by establishing the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT).
A delegation of Sana, which is visiting Sindh, joined a ceremony at the Karachi Press Club in which they presented the award to the eminent medic along with a donation of $10,000.
In his address to the meeting, Dr Rizvi said the SIUT’s 10 centres — nine in Karachi and one in Sukkur — were taking care of a large number of people in Sindh and other parts of the country and majority of them could not afford the cost on transplantation, dialyses and other treatment.
He said the SIUT would continue to serve the humanity irrespective of caste, creed and faith.
Aijaz Turk of the Sana praised Dr Rizvi’s contribution in health sector.
