A brief overview of social welfare society

Introduction:

Social welfare society, Khyber Medical College, is the youth wing of Pakistan Red Crescent Society Khyber Pakhtunkwa. It was formed in the year 1984 as a non-political, non-profit, welfare organization. It is mainly run by the students of Khyber Medical College. It is registered as a Welfare Society with the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkwa. Its accounts are audited annually by professional chartered accountants.

Social Welfare society has a food reputation in the field of social work and public health services. It has been the reciepent of the best youth wing award for the past 30 years and has maintained its high standards throughout.

History of Social Welfare Society:

In Year, 1978, there were three different societies working independently, namely: Totts, Pinows and Escort. In year 1984, these three societies were merged together to form Social Welfare Society. Dr. Naveed Alam was the first General Secretary of the Social Welfare Society in 1984. And since then, the society has been on the rise.

Our Main Principle:

Social Welfare Society since its inception has adhered to the basic principle of “service to humanity”. SWS inherit its motto and purpose from its parent organization, Pakistan Red Crescent Society. It has been blessed for always having the most dedicated volunteers offering their services to its betterment. Reaching out to the Community, educating masses on the issues that matter and allowing well trained professionals to work for their country are some of the myriad objectives of the SWS.

The four wings of SWS are, in true sense, four prongs of the goal of the society. Our support and services are for everyone regardless of race, religion, caste, creed or nationality. It is incumbent upon the members of SWS, to be utterly dedicated to their cause and be always committed to voluntarism and service.

World Malaria day’19 by Health and Education wing  Social welfare Society

World Malaria Day was observed in Khyber Medical College on 25th April, 2019 under Health Education Wing of Social Welfare Society. The activities of the day included a poster competition, scavenger hunt and a quiz competition, the sole aim of all of which was to create awareness about the gravity of the disease among the masses. Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease endemic predominantly in slums and over-populated areas with poor sanitary disposal. A person affected by the disease typically presents with fever, chills, tiredness, headache, vomiting and jaundice. If left untreated, the disease results in death, putting at risk the 3.5 million presumed and confirmed annual cases of malaria in Pakistan. In order to bring these statistics down, raising awareness about malaria, its symptoms and prevention holds primary importance.

The poster competition held on the said day revolved around the theme of “Malaria” where the students were given a free hand to express their ideas through the strokes of their brushes. The seven participating teams came up with exceptionally well-painted and informative posters.

Winning team:

Maria Kakakhel, Maria Maqsood, Malaika Shafi, Sana, Nimra

Runners up: Faryal, Sumbul, Aiman, Nisha, Minahil

The scavenger hunt was one of its kind and happened to be the first one to be held in KMC under SWS. The hunt consisted of 9 stations, at each of which the teams were required to complete a specific task assigned to them. It was fun, games and a lot mayhem, except that it came with a lot of learning about vector-borne diseases. A total of 14 teams participated from all the years.

Winners:

Urooj Siddiq, Ambar Siddiq, Maryam Khilji.

Runners up: Lintha, Zahra, Isra, Sahar.

A photo booth was also setup as a side contest which played a significant role in understanding and knowing more about malaria as a vector-borne disease. The team that took the best picture at the booth was awarded.

Winners:

Urooj Siddiq, Maryam Khilji, Ambar Siddiq.

The last activity of the day consisted of a quiz competition where the knowledge of the participating teams was put to test by three rounds of questions. All the six participating teams were very quick to answer but it eventually came down to two teams in the last round, which was won by second year.

Winning Team:

Mahnoor Iqbal, Hira Rehman, Aisha

The Malaria Day events officially came to an end with the prize distribution ceremony held in Examination Hall. The guest of honour was Dean KMC Dr Noor ul Iman, accompanied by Dr. Aslam and Dr. Mushtaq. The honourable professors distributed shields and certificates among the participating and organising teams along with General Secretary SWS Maaz Khyal, Joint Secretary Irfan Ali, Director Health Education Asma Rasool, Additional Directors Nazia Nijat, Naseem Khan and Assisstant Director Eyan Ali. The entire team expressed its utmost gratitude for being provided with the opportunity to work for creating awareness among people and made a vow to keep up with the noble cause.
