During COVID-19 pandemic

Miss Shakeela Kaleem is a Senior Staff Nurse at Surgery Ward of Allied Hospital, Faisalabad.

She met an accident 8 years ago due to which her lung got damaged and she underwent pneumonectomy (surgical removal of a lung). Up till now, she has been living with one lung only.

During COVID-19 pandemic, she presented herself to serve the patients of COVID-19 in isolation ward. She was asked not to work there as COVID-19 is a disease of lungs and she has already lost one lung but she said, “If Almighty Allah kept me alive with one lung for so many years, He will keep me alive further too.”

Whole Medical Community is proud of her spirit and love of her profession.
