Former Pakistan Cricket team’s skipper Shahid Afridi, who was tested positive for Coronavirus, is in good health, revealed his brother Tariq Afridi.
While talking to a national news channel, Afridi’s brother told his fans and well-wishers that,
“Shahid Afridi is asking for your prayers and support through this tough time and nothing else. Shahid has been working hard with his foundation to deliver rations and protective gear to the poor and needy in deprived areas in Pakistan. He sacrificed his health and took a huge risk whilst doing so and in the process contracted COVID-19.”
The Shahid Afridi Foundation is a charity organization that provides food rations, protective gear, and essential goods during this coronavirus pandemic.
On the other hand, the cricketer’s adviser Saima Khan said,
“I spoke to Lala and the good news is that he is feeling a tiny bit better every day; he put himself at risk to help the poor and underprivileged.”
Saima Khan went on to say,
“Shahid has worked tirelessly through the heat and during the month of Ramadan with little rest. Being on the frontline, any aid worker or health professional is more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19.”
“He has been extremely selfless over this period helping those in need, reaching people that other NGOs have struggled to reach. I’ve been extremely proud of him and what he’s achieved over this period, really coming into his own as a philanthropist,” added Afridi’s adviser.
Khan wishes for Afridi’s speedy recovery and said,
“The prayers of our team, all those he’s reached out to, plus the supporters of our work are with him, and we wish him a speedy recovery.”
The cricket star and his family would continue self-isolating until they recover and get rid of the virus’ symptoms
