Chuk Feeney an Irish-American business tycoon has given away all of his US$ 8 billion fortune to charity, Prime Minister Imran Khan termed this act a “true richness.”
The PM Imran Khan said “This is what I call true richness a liberated soul,” commenting on a media report of the former American billionaire’s achieving his mission of donating all his wealth during his life.
The philanthropy is a subject very close to the prime minister’s heart who always proudly claimed to have collected the biggest donations for the expanding Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital founded by him.
The hospital had received around 7.58 billion during 2019, in donations and zakat to cope with the hospital’s needs established to mainly treat poor cancer patients free of charge.
“We learned a lot. We would do some things differently, but I am very satisfied. I feel very good about completing this on my watch,”
Feeney tells Forbes Magazine who massively donated to charities, universities and foundations worldwide through his foundation, the Atlantic Philanthropies.
In his foundation’s report, “Zero is the Hero” Feeney once said, “I see little reason to delay giving when so much good can be achieved through supporting worthwhile causes. Besides, it’s a lot more fun to give while you live than give while you’re dead.”
