Karachi; November 28, 2016

PIA will continue to patronize Al-Shifa Trust, (PIA's relief and rehabilitation center for special children) and is keen to facilitate it in further developing and enhancing its facilities for the benefit of the special children and the community at large. This was stated by Mr. Bernd Hildenbrand, Chief Executive Officer PIA, during his visit to Al-Shifa Trust here today.

During his visit, in addition to interacting with instructors and inquiring about ways and possibilities of further enhancing TrustĄŻs facilities, Mr. Hildenbrand also spent some time with students, who were suffering from DownĄŻs syndrome and cerebral palsy. He also visited the manufacturing center where a vast range of orthosis and prosthetics are manufactured as per customer needs on modern lines using comfortable and durable material on highly subsidized rates.

Al-Shifa Trust is being headed by a PIA Director, Ms. Ghazala Rashid, who gave a presentation to CEO and the accompanying Directors of Corporate Planning and Human Resource/Works regarding existing services and up-gradation project of Al-Shifa.

She apprised the CEO of the working of the Trust and informed him that since 2008, when she took over the charge as President /Administrator of Al-Shifa, she worked on system development, infrastructure, improvement of services and image building which resulted in increased number of patients and children. Her efforts were appreciated by the CEO and his team.

Mr. Hildenbrand appreciated the fact that since its inception in 1967 the institute has been providing invaluable service not only to the families of PIA, Civil Aviation Authority and Airport Security Force, but also to the general public.

As part of the airline's corporate social responsibility, PIA supports and sponsors Al-Shifa Trust , which provides relief and rehabilitation services to special children.
