Members of the PHM sindh conveyed their grievances and sympathies for the families who have been victimized through the brutal acts of un identified assassins.
They were protesting against injustice and to give message to the authorities responsible for the safety of innocent people.
Eight people working on a polio vaccination campaign shot dead till now. Those killed were among thousands who work selflessly across Pakistan to eradicate polio. They made appeal to Health Workers not to damage their causes by strikes and offensive protest.

Government must take care of affected families and take appropriate safety measures for social workers as the volunteer services to humanity cannot be stopped.
