Human Appeal announce two year partnership with Junaid Jamshed
Human Appeal announced a two year partnership with Pakistani music legend Junaid Jamshed on Friday at a press conference in London.
The deal will see Jamshed give exclusive rights to Human Appeal and work with them on many charitable projects, especially in Pakistan.
The press conference was held before the second leg of the charity’s UK-wide 10 city tour in aid of Rebuilding Lives in Pakistan, Welcome Ramadan, in Ilford.
"I've seen first hand the work of Human Appeal in Pakistan, in particular the sanitation of water and the initiatives they have to prevent the spread of many diseases. Last month, I accompanied them to visit their projects in Pakistan and was moved by the work they do there." Jamshed said.
Othman Moqbel, Human Appeal's Chief Executive, said: "We're delighted that someone of Junaid Jamshed's stature and international standing has joined us. His partnership with Human Appeal will further encourage the good work we do in Pakistan and across the world."
The tour, starring Jamshed and US-based Quran reciter and Youtube sensation, Fatih Seferagic, kicked off on Thursday in Edinburgh.
In each city, a surprise scholar, popular in the local community, will give a inspirational talk to the audience.
Sheikh Sa’ad Noumani, who’s known for his ability to mimic famous reciters from around the world, will also be joining the tour for the last four shows.
