On the other hand, Goodwill Ambassador and renowned Pashto singer Zeek Afridi said “I am pleased that today my name has been associated with an institution that serves humanity. I am proud that the name I have been hearing since childhood, today my name has been associated with this institution as a goodwill ambassador.
At present, more than 30 million people in the country have been badly affected by floods. Therefore, it will be my endeavor that we can play our role in this mission of serving humanity together with the Pakistan Red Crescent Society by bringing the entire nation together”.
Similarly, Pashto singer Irfan Khan, who gained fame with the song “Pekhawar Khu Pekhawar De Kana”, also expressed happiness and reiterated that he would play his full role in the service of humanity as a goodwill ambassador.
At present, the people of KP are suffering due to floods. I was wondering how I could help these people in the end. Therefore, the Red Crescent has given that opportunity to serve humanity by joining hands with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Sana Tajik, associated with the PRCS KP as a goodwill ambassador, expressed her views and said that as a woman, it will be my obligation to highlight the problems of women in the province as well as play my role in helping them.
