She shared the snaps of her visit on her Twitter account along with a message that praised the efforts of the institution in combatting cancer.
I spent a wonderful morning at Shaukat Khanum Cancer Memorial Hospital in Lahore. A hospital not just treating those suffering cancer but a place of hope. The hospital was of world standard and it makes me so happy that we have facilities such as this in Pakistan that are dedicated to the health and welfare for the people of our country. I met some amazing little brave souls who are fighting the great fight and not only winning the battle but also whilst having treatment they attending an inhouse school program and graduating at a primary level. Many graduated today and I was honoured to present them with their certificate. Outstanding initiative by #SKMCH

The adorable lady had a wonderful time with the youthful cancer patients on their 5th graduation ceremony. She presented each of the patients with a card and certificate.
In her short speech, she said the hospital matches the international standards. She did not feel that she is standing in a hospital in Pakistan. It felt as if she is standing in a hospital in Australia or USA.
She also praised the efforts of doctors and nurses who work endlessly and effortlessly to put the smiles on the faces of these little cancer patients.
She said that such events are important to organize since it helps the sufferers to live a normal life. Cancer not only affects the victims but in fact, it stresses the whole family.
She appreciated the families of the children who attended the event. The lady further said that what she loves about Pakistan is the high value that is placed on family traditions. The whole family reaches out to help if one member is in trouble.
She further added that the love Pakistanis show is something that no one can take this away from them.
