Amir Khan joins Bollywood’s stunning Shilpa Shetty Kundra
Amir Khan is set to raise the bar once again; he is now teaming up with the gorgeous Shilpa Shetty Kundra – Bollywood Actress and winner of Channel 4’s Celebrity Big Brother.
Determined to make an impact on the plight of Orphans within South East Asia – whom Amir refers to as ‘The forgotten Children’ – The Amir Khan Foundation and the Shilpa Shetty Foundation have joined forces to host, for the first time in British history –
A South East Asian Charity Concert
Amir and Shilpa have vowed to bring together leading South Asian celebrities on one platform in the UK, to raise awareness of the fact that South East Asia has one of the highest orphan populations in the world – 40 Million!
“My success has been a result of the love and support of my fans and giving back has always been fundamental to me.
I strive to dedicate time and resources to charitable causes and launched the Amir Khan Foundation to allow me to take a hands on approach supporting young people in the UK and to manage international projects, such as establishing an orphanage within Gambia and clean water wells in Pakistan.” Shares Amir Khan
“As a father, providing the best I can for my little angel is number one to me.
To know there are millions of precious children in the world living with no hope, in unimaginable conditions is heart-breaking.
To know that South East Asia, my parents’ homeland, has one of the largest Orphan populations in the world is unacceptable!
I can’t sit back and ignore this and I hope you feel the same”
“With your help I want to make a difference to the lives of as many of these children as possible.”
Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra, a British born entrepreneur states,
“This will be an entertaining fund raising concert like no other.
Social media has done wonders in removing international boundaries within the virtual world, now we will do the same in reality, through the unification of business and entertainment professionals from the UK and South East Asia to one location in the UK.
Two foundations coming together for one good cause…#OrphanAid. It’s going to be epic!”
Shilpa Shetty Kundra, a world renowned Bollywood actress spent many years supporting various philanthropic causes before finally going on to establish The Shilpa Shetty Foundation, to personally ensure orphan children are protected and provided with the resources necessitated to give them hope for the future.
“The issue is vast and turning a blind eye or shifting responsibility is not a solution for these vulnerable children. They are an easy target for sexual exploitation and human trafficking.” Says Shilpa Shetty Kundra
“Most people don’t really understand the extent of the problem. There is no shocking news story behind their existence, no political or natural disaster. These children are real, all 40 million of them with – no shelter, no food, no hope!”
Shilpa also shares she is “thrilled to be able to host the #OrphanAid concert here in the UK.
“It’s the best place to be”
Amongst leading British Asian and Bollywood celebrities, British singer and songwriter Jay Sean has also pledged his support
“with our performances we will break the sound barrier – this one’s going to be very special – it’s time to give back”
The #OrphanAid Charity Concert will take place
29th April 2017 – Troxy, London
