Amir Khan visits Thar, announces the construction of a hospital
MITHI: Boxing champ Amir Khan on Thursday visited Thar along with Pakistan Army officials where he announced the construction of a hospital equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and inaugurated water and power facilities for the drought-hit region.
The UK-based boxer turned to Twitter to post pictures of his recent visit, urging people to assist with the humanitarian effort of bringing clean water to the residents of the area.
The 29-year-old mixed with the locals during his tour and also thanked Pakistan Army officials for their constant support.
He added that due to the foundation’s work, nearly 800 people are able to obtain clean drinking water and he hopes to continue on this effort.
