Pakistani origin British boxer Amir Khan has announced to donate Rs40 million to Pakistan to help fight the novel coronavirus. Khan also offered to use his Islamabad boxing academy as a quarantine for the coronavirus patients.
“Amir Khan Foundation will make sure to distribute ration and other necessary things among the poor,” said Amir.
Adding that, “I want to help the government of Pakistan as they assist the patients affected by a coronavirus.”
Since he realizes that coronavirus patients have to keep in isolation hence the gymnasium in his boxing academy would serve the purpose.
The amount of stuff Amir Khan has done outside of boxing to help people and charities all the way through his career is remarkable . Some we hear about and some we don’t. Either way Should be noted 🙏🏼
