Henceforth, FPCCI has decided to help NICVD’s voice heard to governmental, non-governmental and international donors. CM Sindh pointed out that the sovernment of Sindh was providing an annual budget of 22 billion rupees to only three big hospitals of Karachi and NICVD was one of them.

Professor Dr Nadeem Qamar, executive director, said that NICVD served a massive number of 2.3 million helpless heart patients in 2019, 1.6 million in 2020 and will serve around 2.3 million patients in 2021 as well. Dr Sohail Khan, an interventional cardiologist and the main architect of the event, suggested that instead of giving cash, the donors can provide the expensive machinery, equipment and tools required for the operations of NICVD to maintain transparency. He also put forward the proposal to the business community to come forward and take up the financial responsibility for the completion of ongoing civil works of various NICVD projects; specifically, pediatric cardiac care building project. Khurram Tariq Sayeed, a former VP FPCCI, in his concluding remarks that the business, industry and trade community of Pakistan will stand by NICVD and requested the press and media to support FPCCI’s efforts to create awareness for the same.
