This is why, people from all walks of should come forward, he further said. I am a cancer survivor. I along with my family members am living with cancer for the last 30 years. This is why I am relentlessly working to build Ahsania Mission Cancer Hospital.

Expressing gratitude to all, Dhaka Ahsania Mission President Kazi Rafiqul Alam said, if people from all walks of life come forward in such a manner then definitely we shall be able to commission the cancer hospital by the year end. He said this while delivering his presidential address. The hospital will be run on ‘no profit, no loss’ basis, he said. About two lakh people are being attacked with cancer annually across the country annually. Of them, one and a half lakh die every year. About 5,000-crore taka goes abroad as expenditure of cancer treatment. He appealed to the countrymen to come forward to assist in building the hospital.

Eighty percent cancer of children is possible abroad while in our country 25% cancer of children can be cured. He welcomed the initiative of building Ahsania Mission Cancer Hospital.
