Internet Desk: Amir Khan has come forward for a special cause to save a seven-year-old Pakistani boy whose life is in critical condition for a massive tumour in his eyes.
World welterweight title contender and world’s one of the top boxers showed this special gesture which has certainly reflected his humanitarian face
Just yesterday, the former world champion took to his official Facebook page to ask for more information about Ali Hassan, whose mass appears to be spreading quickly, after reading about his plight on a British newspaper.
And it can be revealed today that Mr Khan has spoken to Ali’s father Muhammad Mansha and told him that he will help find and pay for surgery to remove the gruesome lump through his charitable foundation.
The Bolton-born boxer, who takes pride in his Pakistani heritage, told his four million Facebook followers: ‘I just spoke to his father in Pakistan and told them Amir Khan Foundation will help.’
The heartwarming post attracted more than 11,000 likes and the star was inundated with hundreds of comments from emotional strangers who were also keen to help in any way they could.
The Amir Khan Foundation was set-up in 2014 and was designed to help youngsters from the poorest parts of the world by providing them with schools and clean drinking water.
But Mr Khan has since branched out after reading about Ali, who is from a remote village in the eastern region of Pakistan, being unable to see out of his right eye due to the tumour.
Reports of when the mass began to form are unclear, but medical literature assumes he may have lived with the growth for years.
