In July the group launched a fundraiser to help parents who can’t afford laptops for their children, particularly as these have been so necessary throughout the pandemic.
Organiser Dr Fahad Memon said: “Lots of families have no laptop so their children cannot access online resources, which means they are missing their learning.
“We are donating laptops to schools, which then they can loan to parents for their children to use.”
The president of Sindh Doctors Association UK, Dr Shahbux Lashare was at the handover, along with Highlands headteacher Dr Kulvarn Atwal and associate headteacher Sandeep Kaur.
