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.

General Secretary

Studying and observing the problem rather than working with others toward a solution is a fruitless endeavor. SWS provided me with such a great platform where we can work as a team for the cause of humanity as i strongly believe that
“THE SOLE MEANING OF LIFE IS TO SERVE HUMANITY BECAUSE ONLY A LIFE LIVED IN THE SERVICE TO OTHERS IS WORTH LIVING”

You cannot compel everyone to walk on the path which is the right one
But your little endeavour can make your grave the bright one

Bringing smiles on others faces may not cost you a penny
But will definitely make you a superhuman in the hearts of many

Lets come forward and join our hands for this noble cause
And play your part to lessen on the world the burden of flaws.

Drug Store is proud to announce that after remaining inactive for many years, this year we conducted a Meds Camp 2021 for the non-teaching staff of KMC. The Camp happened in 3 stages.
1st Stage was of data collection where teams went to non-teaching staff of different academic departments, security members, cleaning staff and transport staff. They were asked about their health conditions and those of their close family members. The data was proficiently collected and confidentiality was ensured.
2nd stage was the most important one where teams went to KTH and collected the respective medicines needed for conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, gastric issues, respiratory problems and special medicines for vision issues, bone related diseases etc. The teams got their hands at the samples provided by pharmaceutical companies.
3rd Stage was of Drugs Distribution where these medicines were given to the members of non teaching staff by hand. Complimentary packet of cough syrups and painkillers was given to each academic department.
Alhumdulillah the event was well appreciated by the people benefitted and strict SOPS were observed.
In Shaa Allah Drug Store plans to continue the practice in near future as well. We thank Dr. Naila Hamid for providing us with this golden opportunity.
