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.
