The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Central Contracting Cricketers have announced donations of more than Rs 5 million to the Government Emergency Fund to help the Corona virus.
A statement issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board said that all cricketers and employees with a central contract will contribute to the Government Emergency Fund through financial support in the fight against the Coronavirus.
The PCB's centrally contracted players will donate a total of Rs 50 lakh in this regard.
In addition, employees up to the rank of senior manager of PCB will contribute one day of their monthly salary while the general manager and senior staff will donate to the 2-day salary fund.
The PCB will provide the same amount of money as the staff gathers.
Chairman PCB Ehsan Mani said that it is the tradition of the Pakistan Cricket Board that he is standing with his government in all the difficult times and is still standing with his government.
"This is a difficult time for our provincial and federal governments as well as the health workers of the department and we ask for their success so that our society can run as usual," he said.
In this regard, the PCB has made a small effort to support the government in its fight against the Corona virus.
Ehsan Mani said, "We are confident that like many other generous and generous people in our society, many PCB employees and cricketers will be donating their own funds to government funds and other charitable organizations."
He hoped that all these individuals would continue to make their own donations in the fight against the Corona virus.
Chairman PCB said that the success of a nation is determined by its unity in difficult times and we all have to face this epidemic in this difficult time.
Ehsan Mani said that he once again appealed to the Pakistan Cricket Board to take full precautionary measures as the only way to be safe from this outbreak is to take precautions.
"We are a very strong nation and we believe that we can all overcome this epidemic," he said.
