Afridi Launches Coronavirus Challenge And Cricketers Cannot Ignore It

Shahid Afridi Donate Karo Na Campaign

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the lives of people and businesses in Pakistan, the condition of the poor is becoming grim with time. The government is working on different projects to help the needy in this time of crisis. However, to play their part, many Pakistanis have also started drives that can let them survive in this difficult phase.

‘Donate Karo Na’ gets support from cricket stars

Former cricketer Shahid Afridi launched his campaign last week to help those in need amid the COVID-19 crisis. He also started a challenge as part of his campaign and nominated two international and one local cricketer for it. All they have to do is to record a video with a tip on staying safe. Soon cricketers from everywhere including India voiced their support for the cause.

Here’s what Boom Boom has to say about the coronavirus challenge.

Shahid Afridi Foundation aims to go to remote areas as the resources are limited there. As per the post, Afridi also urged everyone to contribute to his caus.e Initially, Boom Boom nominated Pakistani cricketer Muhammad Amir, India’s Harbhajan Singh, and English all-rounder Chris Jordan to take up the challenge.

Apart from the three nominees, Afghanistan’s Rashid Ali, Babar Azam, and Australian journalist Dennis Freedman also poured in to support the campaign. They also nominated cricket legend Wasim Akram, Yuvraj Singh, and Shoaib Akhtar in their videos.

Chris Jordan also joined the chain and nominated three more cricket stars.

Voluntarily taking up the challenge, Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan gave out three names too.

Young Pakistani captain Babar Azam also pitched in with Imam-ul-Haq, Hassan Ali and Sarfraz Ahmed.

Australian journalist Dennis Freedman also became part of the challenge and tagged Junoon the band, singer Ali Zafar and ‘eye to eye’ famed, Taher Shah.

Praising Afridi’s selfless efforts for humanity, Shaheen Shah Afridi shared his amazing experience while visiting the foundation in Kohat.

Hopes are high that more and more people will pitch in with Shahid Afridi and will dedicatedly play their part. It won’t be wrong to say that the dangerous coronavirus crisis has converged all Pakistanis on one platform for one cause. Donate as much as you can so that the poor don’t have to sleep with an empty stomach again. Hope not out!
