Imran Khan has inaugurated the PM’s COVID-19 Relief Fund website earlier today, urging overseas Pakistanis to donate generously to the cause.
The funds raised will be used to combat the novel coronavirus, which has resulted in over 5,400 reported cases in the country with close to 100 deaths. Pakistanis living abroad can donate via the official website.
Former England cricketer, Kevin Pietersen, posted a video message for overseas Pakistanis, requesting them to play their part in overcoming the health crisis in their homeland.
I’m trying to assist in what’s a bit of a dire situation in Pakistan. We all know that Pakistanis all over the world contributing back to Pakistan. It creates a lot of revenue and helps a lot of people that desperately need their help.
“This is just a call out to all Pakistanis living abroad that they please support the Prime Minister’s relief fund”, he added.
