Amir Khan has announced that he will provide in excess of 10,000 care packages to residents of Islamabad, Pakistan amid COVID-19 induced food shortages. Packages include food, water and toiletries, with the former World champion disclosing via social media that the Pakistan Army will help distribute the goods from the Amir Khan Boxing Hall.
Khan – often recognised for his phenomenal charity work by way of the Amir Khan Foundation – shared both videos and photos of the kind-hearted gesture on his Facebook page. The accompanying message from the 33-year-old former Olympic star read:
“Seeing everyone suffer in Pakistan with food shortage due to the coronavirus – I have made bags which contain rice, flour, daal, chick peas, juices, water, powder milk, bars of soap. I would like to thank the Pakistan Army for helping us distributing the bags. The bags will be distributed tomorrow from Amir Khan boxing hall in Islamabad 2pm. Over 10,000 bags will be given out to those in need.”
