The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), on the request of the Government of Sindh, has decided to convert its Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre (HPC) as a temporary living facility for the paramedic staff working at the makeshift hospital at Expo Centre, Karachi and fighting the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
“All the paramedic staff are our heroes as in these challenging and difficult times, they are risking their lives to save the lives and well-being of many affected by COVID-19," PCB Chief Operating Officer Salman Naseer said in a PCB press release.
“As a small token of our appreciation and acknowledgement to these unsung heroes and as part of our duty of care, the PCB is pleased to offer its state-of-the-art Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre as a temporary lodging and boarding for the paramedic staff working at Expo Centre hospital so that they can serve those suffering from COVID-19 more effectively and efficiently.”
The Hanif Mohammad High Performance Centre is located by the side of the National Stadium Karachi, and is in the close vicinity of the Expo Centre.
