The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor, Eng. Iqbal Zafar Jhagra has appreciated the Peshawar based Rehman Medical Institute for its focus on prevention of disease besides very commendable role in provision of healthcare services and health education for a quite long time as an integral part of the community. He was addressing the prize distribution ceremony of the 3rd RMI Open Golf Tournament at Peshawar Golf Club on Sunday which was arranged by the management of the Institution in collaboration with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Golf Association and Peshawar Golf Club. A number of golfers from all over the country participated the event. The Governor said, “Promotion of healthy lifestyles is now globally recognized as the best tool for prevention against disease and several initiatives by RMI to organize and sponsor such healthy activities speaks highly of their sincerity towards their corporate social responsibilities”. Appreciating the conduct of the tournament, he said, it must have provided an opportunity for renewal and development of golfing skills, and initiation of new acquaintances to the participants. “As all true sports lovers know, the beauty of the whole exercise is not just in winning but in participating”, he added. Peshawar, he said, has been blessed with one of the best golf courses in the country where enormous golfing talent exists and all it needs is some support and recognition in order to take them to a national and an international stage. Such events are a great opportunity to portray Peshawar and the province in a positive light, he said. While expressing good wishes to the participants, the Governor hoped that they would come back next year to enjoy the 4th edition of the Tournament.
