Social media has emerged as a champion in many situations in the recent past. Be it in case of natural calamities, or cases of any international crisis, social media has been connecting people who are in need of help and those who are more than willing to help them out. When Pakistani actor Ahsan Khan posted a video of a homeless man asking for an office job in fluent English, little did he know that the good Samaritans of the Internet would reach out to help in hordes.
Watch the video below to hear what he had to say:
“A helping hand is no farther than at the end of your sleeve”
Plz let me know if anyone of you is interested in helping this man !!!

We live in a world where everyone is struggling to just get by comfortably enough. There are many who fall way below the minimum literacy requirements to get proper office jobs. But, we just assume the qualified ones at least find it easier to earn a livelihood of their choice. So, it was naturally shocking that this man from Lahore, who speaks English so fluently, and seems to be in complete control of his cognitive abilities, was homeless and unemployed.
There was an outpouring of messages once the video went viral. And soon enough, he landed a job! Amtech Systems, an IT solutions company tweeted that now he will not only have a job, but also warm accommodations to live in. And, Amtech Systems along with Ahsan Khan have launched a new initiative called ‘Employ Pakistani’ with more than 100 firms on board!
