Pakistan’s favourite batsman, Shahid Afridi vows to help Pakistan’s Special Olympics Tennis gold medalist, Sajda. He recently shared a tweet included a video of the star tennis player holding her medals accompanied by her mother who requested for Afridi to help them overcome a financial crisis.
پاکستان کے لیئے آپ کی کامیابی فخر کا باعث ہے ۔
شاہدہ آفریدی فاونڈیشن صحت، تعلیم اور پانی کے حصول کے لیئے کام کرتی ہے مگر میرا یہ وعدہ ہے کہ میں خود ذاتی طور پر آپ کی مدد دو دن میں کروں گا ۔
ان شاء اللہ ۔ https://t.co/QHstpwZPLp

She said, “I just want Shahid Afridi to kindly help my husband find a decent job and help me generate an income through working at home. I can stitch chadars, but we honestly just want to earn a respectable livelihood for our children.”
In response to her plea, Afridi started off by complimenting the young star with the words “Pakistan keliye apki kaamiyabi fakhar ka baais hai. (Your success is a matter of pride for Pakistan).” He then vowed to help the family within two days on his own accord. He also said “Shahid Afridi Foundation sehet, taaleem or paani ke husool keliye kaam karti hai, (Although the Shahid Afridi foundation works for health, education and water) magar mera ye waada hai ke men khud zaati tor par apki madad do din men karunga (but I promise you that I will personally assist you within these two days).”
We need more celebrities from all walks of life to come forward and help out whoever they can. Here is Shahid Afridi winning hearts for more than hitting a sixer.
