Dr. Ayesha Esani said, "The children were fed substandard meals which led to food poisoning."

PIMS spokesperson Waseem Khwaja said, "The children are suffering from gastro diseases."

Pakistan Sweet Homes patron-in-chief Zamrud Khan said, "The orphans were not victims of malnutrition as the management makes sure that the children were fed with quality food."
