Mahira and Maya urge for donations for a Shaukat Khanum cancer hospital

Fundraisers for the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital are always star-studded affairs whether they’re hosted by Ayesha Omar or have Ali Zafar onboard as a performer.
This year, brand ambassadors of the SKMH Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, Maya Ali and Mahira Khan, attended the gala in Dubai yesterday.
The two stars, alongside Fakhar-e-Alam, appeared on stage, encouraging people to donate so they can move forward with constructing a hospital in Karachi.
“I promise you if you all just took a trip to Shaukat Khanum Hospital, you wouldn’t need me or anyone else to even tell you to donate. You’d want to be donating, you’d want to be helping. Donate open heartedly, every penny of it goes to people who need it,” appealed Mahira to attendees.
The event, which took place at the Atlantis Ballroom, wrapped up with a musical performance by Rizwan & Muazzam Ali Qawwal.
