Former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Khan Afridi agreed to work for brands, not for money or personal gain, but for ration exchange and funds that can be used to support the underprivileged suffering from the coronavirus lockdown.
Taking to Twitter, Afridi said: “I have been lucky to have worked with many brands for ads/promotion. Now working first hand with the ones suffering during COVID-19, I have a proposal to all brands: I will work with brands for free personally - I just want ration and funds in return,” read the tweet.
'Boom Boom' Afridi held a ration campaign titled ‘Donate Karo Na’ for the struggling minorities in the country. He donated essential supplies to Hindu and Christian communities in need at a time where Pakistan battles the COVID-19 pandemic at neck break speed.
Shahid Afridi has been pretty active on the ground helping out the bottom strata and economically weaker sections of the society in the country to help them fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Through the Shahid Afridi Foundation, the iconic Pakistani all-rounder has raised funds and delivered essential supplies to over 2000 families. In India as well as Pakistan, many cricketers have come forward and donated.
