Mobilink, Pakistan’s market leader in cellular services and part of Orascom Telecom Holding, collaborated with Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) to arrange an exciting cricket match at the PIA Cricket Academy in Karachi.
Volunteering Mobilink and PIA employees collaborated to bring smiles to the students of two prominent special education institutions, Al-Shifa school, which runs under the supervision of PIA, and Estanara Think-Tank School. Cricket legend and Mobilink Brand-Ambassador, Wasim Akram was also there to provide tips to the young players.
Divided into two teams, the young souls enjoyed a fun filled day with their peers and Mobilink and PIA employees. At the end of the match, miniature cricket bats, personally signed by Wasim Akram, were distributed as souvenirs among the players of the winning team. Wasim also went out on the ground and played a few friendly overs with the students, who were overjoyed to see this world-class fast bowler amongst them.
Praising the efforts of the participating children Wasim shared, “I find it delightful to see so much talent and spirit among these children who are boldly meeting all the challenges of life with so much courage and passion. It is a commendable initiative by Mobilink and PIA and I am grateful for getting the opportunity to spend some time with them.”
Corporate Social Responsibility is a core value at Mobilink and the company actively contributes to give back to the community it operates in.
