The student-run LUMS Emergency Medical Service (EMS) is one of the most shining examples of student responsibility and achievement, not only at LUMS but at any University. This volunteer student organisation has emerged as the first point of call in medical emergencies on campus. EMS is sponsored by Mahvash and Jehangir Siddiqui Foundation. At Mahvash & Jahangir Siddiqui Foundation the aim is to provide healthcare, education and social enterprise through sustainable development to underprivileged members of society with a special focus on women, minorities, children and disabled individuals. FemSoc at LUMS is a student run society concerned with creating and increasing awareness about gendered problems that result from patriarchal attitudes embedded in social and cultural institutions. By arranging dialogues, and having conversations with the LUMS community, the Feminist Society (FemSoc) attempts to engage with problems produced by expected gender roles, the disregard of female education, sexual harassment, the dominance of male culture in the workplace, as well as mobility problems for women across economic classes. FemSoc is also a society that is attempting to push for structural change for gender and sexual minorities on campus and hopes to create a safe environment for such minorities.
