ISLAMABAD: The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will run a campaign to raise donations for the construction of Diamer Bhasha and Mohmand Dams in South Africa.
A bat and ball signed by Prime Minister Imran Khan will be auctioned at the dam fundraising campaign, PTI Senator Faisal Javed said.
Pakistan cricket team, which is currently in South Africa for the ODI and upcoming T20 series, has been invited to the fundraising event. Pakistan stand-in captain Shoaib Malik, Muhammad Hafeez, Hasan Ali, Shadab Khan, Imam-ul-Haq and Usman Shinwari are among others who have been invited.
“The passion of overseas Pakistanis to raise funds for the construction of dams is commendable,” Javed said.
“I urge Pakistanis living in South Africa to actively participate in the dam fund campaign,” he added.
The PTI leader further said that “the time isn’t far when the water crisis in Pakistan will be curbed”.
