FIRST HEALTH EXPO
On the 24th of January 2016, history was created when the volunteers of HOPES organized the first ever HOPES Health Expo; the first such event in Pakistan organized by a student-run NGO. These volunteers were all medical students with little or zero knowledge of putting together an event on such a huge scale, but they had a vision which drove them to work hard and do their best to turn it into a reality. After months of hardwork, the event turned out to be a success, with over 9000 people in attendance.
The expo included free check-ups and screenings for various diseases such as Hepatitis, Sugar, CBC etc. Clinics of various departments providing awareness, seminars by some of the renowned professors and life coaches. A large number of NGOs from Karachi also put up stalls informing the public about their working.
