Rawalpindi, March 16, 2013 (PPI-OT): Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani visited Armed Forces Institute of Rehabilitation Medicines (AFIRM) Rawalpindi and inaugurated the 3rd Annual Sports Day organized for our officers and soldiers wounded in operations, at a specially designed sports centre here within the institution. Amidst moving scenes during the conduct of various sports events for these war wounded heroes he appreciated their courage and determination which has helped them integrate in the society as useful citizens once again. There can’t be a sacrifice for the motherland more than losing one’s life or precious limbs.
During his visit to AFIRM, COAS also appreciated the standard of facilities and care extended to the inmates by a team of dedicated doctors and paramedical staff of AFIRM and praised their efforts in helping all military personnel wounded in various operations rehabilitate. With concerted efforts at the Army level, AFIRM has transformed into a premier rehabilitative medicine institute with all sub specialties available under one roof.
Earlier, on arrival, COAS was received by Lieutenant General Azhar Rashid, Surgeon General and Major General Akhtar Waheed, Commandant AFIRM.
