Karachi: The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan wants his former teammates and members of the 1992 World Cup-winning team to donate as much as they can to ‘Prime Minister Relief Fund for COVID-19’.
Speaking to ARY Network’s Telethon Transmission, PM Khan recalled how he used to pull Wasim Akram and other team member’s attention towards raising funds for Shaukat Khanum Hospital.
“I still remember how I forced Wasim Akram and other team members to donate for Shaukat Khanum Hospital earlier in 1992. They were not interested initially but I forced them towards this cause and later on they all joined me. I appeal all of them and the entire nation once again to come forward and help me, my country in this challenging time,” he said.
It must be noted here that PM Khan has setup ‘Prime Minister Relief Fund for COVID-19’ to better serve people in the country during coronavirus pandemic. The government has revealed bank account details in which Pakistanis from across the world can donate.
Coronavirus has hit the entire world with its intensity. Almost all countries are affected by this virus which has taken plenty of lives. Several cities are locked down and public gatherings are strictly prohibited. Major sports events around the world have also been postponed.
