Shahid Afridi vows to restore KP public library that’s turned into a garbage dump


Cricketer Shahid Afridi has recently shared that his namesake foundation will be working to restore the only public library present in Tank District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The announcement followed after a concerned citizen took to Twitter to point out how the space has turned into a garbage dump and requires urgent action for refurbishment.

“It’s heart-wrenching to see the only library in District Tank, KP, closed for over 15 years now. Youth is our future & education is paramount to their development. I will ensure restoration of this library with help of my foundation,” the Boom Boom athlete posted.

Here’s hoping the space can be reopened and utilised responsibly by the public.
