Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre


The Hospital

Over the past two decades, Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre has established itself as a centre of excellence providing comprehensive care free of cost to thousands of indigent cancer patients. This pioneering, state-of-the-art hospital located in Lahore, Pakistan was founded by Imran Khan, one of Pakistan’s most illustrious cricketers. As a charitable institute, it is funded predominantly from the donations of friends and well-wishers from around the country and across the world.


Many young innocent lives are being saved at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre. Last year, your Zakat made it possible to treat almost 75% of our patients for free. This year we need 4.5 billion rupees to help those who cannot afford to pay for their own treatment. While the revenue from the Hospital’s diagnostic services has always, and continues to be, utilised for our expansion projects, it is your Zakat that is the hope of life for our poor cancer patients. Donate generously to SKMCH&RC this Ramadan and help us keep this hope alive.


As to date the Hospital has spent over Rs. 22.18 billion (US $ 270 million) in providing state-of-the-art treatment facilities to patients from all over the country. We have embarked upon a number of expansion projects across Pakistan and need your support to continue with the mission now more than ever.
