The 7th Engro LRBT Golf Tournament was successfully held on January 14th, 2024, at the Karachi Golf Club. It was a day of much jubilation as 36 teams consisting of professionals from prestigious financial institutions, corporates, media, and business houses competed for the top prize. As the organization’s flagship event, the LRBT Golf Tournament is instrumental in raising funds to support the mission of ensuring that “no man, woman, or child goes blind just because they cannot afford treatment”.
The LRBT Golf Tournament, having been held consecutively for the past seven years, is an annual tradition enjoyed by donors, golfers, and the LRBT team itself. The primary goal of the event is to generate funds that enable LRBT to continue to provide free eye care across its nationwide network of 19 hospitals and 56 primary eye care clinics, catering to even the most marginalized segments of Pakistan’s population.
Mr. Najmus Saquib Hameed, Honorary Chairman LRBT, expressed his gratitude to all participants for their participation in the seventh edition of this highly successful event. He emphasized that all donations will directly support LRBT’s mission and enable sight-restoration surgeries for 4000 patients in need.
