Shakib launches charity foundation for coronavirus-hit people

Stellar all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has stepped into the war against the life-threatening novel coronavirus with the launch of a charity organisation in his name on his verified Facebook page on Saturday night.

The project will help people affected by the outbreak of the coronavirus at a time when the entire country is battling to tame the coronavirus pandemic. Countless underprivileged people waiting for the pandemic to end so that they can return to normal life.

The Shakib Al Hasan Foundation has taken steps towards fundraising from different well-off people and organisations at home and abroad. It has also extended its helping hand towards the distressed.

“The Shakib Al Hasan Foundation will work for the development of the people of Bangladesh. We can address anything in tandem. Come and work as a single unit. We can save Bangladesh by utilising our voices and hands,” Shakib wrote in his post.

Former Australian leg-spin wizard Shane Warner, former Australian speedster Bret Lee, and former Australian captain Steve Waugh have also founded their respective charity foundations, he noted.

Like them all, Shakib Al Hasan will also be ascended into the field of the global stage. But his prime objective is to ensure a safe life and develop the people of Bangladesh.
