Pakistan’s 69th Independence Day was celebrated with great fervour and jubilation by all the patients and staff of Sunny Trust on August 14, 2015. Dr. Munawar Fayyaz Sunny, Chairman ST presided over the celebrations. In his highly motivating address on the occasion, Dr. Sunny stressed on the patients that this Independence Day for them should mean their own “independence” from drugs. They must resolve to stay away from smoking and all drugs, and make a solemn pledge to lead a healthy and productive, completely drug-free including smoke-free life. Different activities including games with balloons, speech contests, national songs competition and mushaira had been arranged in connection with the day. Samaa TV team also visited STI and recorded the day’s celebrations for telecast. The entire Sunny Trust premises had been illuminated and decorated with national flags, portraits of national leaders, and banners and buntings to give a festive look.
