As per tradition,
NUST Community Service Club and NUST Admin. organized a free Eye Camp for NUST
students, Faculty members and Staff on April 10-11, 2014, at the NUST Medical
Centre, in collaboration with Al-Shifa Eye Trust, an esteemed and trusted
organization based out of Islamabad.
The camp included
qualified doctors assisted by NCSC executives and volunteers, all of whom were
students of NUST. The aim of the camp was to provide the general Non-Gusseted
(NG) staff with free eye check-ups, free medicine and free glasses to those in
need. As expected, the turnout was remarkable; a staggering 400 people were
facilitated on the first day, and even more had come out but unfortunately some of
them had to be turned away only to return the next day. On the second day,
approximately 200 students and NG staff, as well as officers and faculty, were
facilitated. It should be noted that most of the people among the treated were
Non-Gusseted staff, which were the main target of the campaign.
On another front, NCSC
was also successful in gathering a rather large amount of volunteers for the
camp. NCSC is a student led club and the role of NUST administration was
commendable but could not compare to that of the students (executives and
volunteers). It was due to the altruistic attitude of the volunteers that
attracted and successfully managed to assist all those who fared forward for
medical aid. Deputy Director Administration (DD Admin) Arif Siddiqui himself
complimented on their service and encouraged everyone to keep up the
humanitarian work in the future.
