Numerous studies and reviews indicate that people who participate in sports and organized recreational activity enjoy better mental health, are more alert, and more resilient against the stresses of modern living. Therefore, the POB Trust provides recreational opportunities to enhance the learning and promote mental and physical health.
The POB Trust organizes various recreational activities for its doctors’ families such as visit to museum, local parks or recreation centers. The families find endless enjoyment, relaxation and learning opportunities. These recreational activities are designed to develop self-esteem and confidence building in children as well.
Last year, the POB Trust had 31 doctors’ families (over 150 people) traveled from Lahore to Ayubia. It was obvious at the picnic that families supporting other families is invaluable, and is the heart and soul of the POB Trust’s annual picnic program. There were traditional activities, games for the youngsters, lots of food and fun for everyone. The Trust rented an outing facility in Ayubia for two days.
