This was my first visit to Pakistan. I was a guest of Prof Huma Arshad Cheema, Professor of Paediatric Gastroenterology at the Lahore Children’s Hospital. Clinics and lectures had been organised.
Professor Cheema has campaigned tirelessly for LSD patients and their families in Pakistan. It has been a privilege to have known and worked with her.
I was kept pretty busy, but Huma ensured that I also had a chance to see the beautiful historic city of Lahore, the cultural centre of the Punjab. I even manage a trip to Harappa, one of the centres of the Indus Valley Civilization.
Huma and her team were perfect hosts; their kindness, warmth and hospitality overwhelming. It was an unforgettable experience.
