Hyderabad: An Osmania Medical College (OMC) alumnus has donated 150 three-seater iron benches to Osmania General Hospital (OGH) with an aim to improve the seating capacity for patients and their attenders. Out of the 150, 50 benches were handed over to the hospital on Thursday.

Dr Jafer Qureshi, an OMC alumnus, settled in United Kingdom and a Trustee of UK-based Al-Khair Foundation, took up the initiative to enhance patient comfort in OGH with the help of its CSR (corporate social responsibility) partner Helping Hand Foundation.

"I believe that we have only been talking, but time is right for doctors, particularly those settled abroad, and alumni of OMC are duty-bound to come forward and do something to improve facilities and services at OGH from where all passed out," said Dr Qureshi. He promised that he would take up other works to improve facilities and services at OGH in consultation with the hospital administration, he added. "We are glad that CSR Groups & NGOs are coming forward to partner with OGH which will go a long way in improving patient services, said Dr B Nagender, superintendent, Osmania General Hospital.

"We are very excited to work with State-run hospitals where hundreds and thousands of weaker sections get health services and we shall expand our foot print in areas which are strong like RO plants & drinking water facilities," said Feroz Baig, Head of Development at Al Khair Foundation. Al Khair Foundation handed over the benches at a brief function in the Old Building in the presence of Dr B Nagender, Qureshi couple, Feroz Baig in presence of RMOs & staff. Mujtaba Hasan Askari from Helping Hand Foundation too was present on the occasion.
