Midland Doctors are particularly honoured for Mr. Farhan to join the executive committee as he was one of the original members of Midland Doctors team who helped the Earthquake victims in Balakot in 2005. As one will recall with respect to the history of the organization, it was this event which led to the inception of the idea to build a charity hospital with the earthquake region. Subsequently this led to the involvement of the group in multiple humanitarian crises. He is keen to enhance the Educational/ Surgical Training capabilities at MDMI and became the Director of Education of Midland Doctors during the Covid-19 pandemic efforts. The provision of education to Pakistani staff has been groundbreaking in delivery across a virtual platform.
