Appeal to Zong: Help the World’s 3rd Youngest & Tallest Man

A Guest Post by: Asifa Hamid

At about 7 feet 8 inches, Haq is reportedly the world’s 3rd youngest man to make it to the list of Tallest men in the world and Pakistan’s second tallest after Naseer Soomro.

24 year old Haq Nawaz from Bhawalnagar comes from an extremely modest background. Raised by his mother who teaches Quran to neighborhood children so she can make ends meet, Haq is used to sacrificing his whims and fancies on a regular basis. Lately he is struggling to fund his medical expenses. His story sounds like that of any other young Pakistani lad. Except, Haq Nawaz is a national asset.

Being an orphan, Haq Nawaz can’t do much to support himself or even get proper medical treatment for his health problem. Abnormal increase in height, medically referred to as ‘Gigantism’ happens due to overproduction of growth hormone during childhood. As the body continues to grow, the person starts suffering from multiple health problems. In Haq Nawaz’s case, he suffers from bone deformity and skeletal problems. Today, Haq is going door to door to raise funds for his medical treatment.

Other than being called on a show by ARY and a commercial offer from Zong (Bara Recharge), Haq has not had much luck.

It is a humble appeal to Zong to support Haq in his medical treatment. I am sure multinational such as Zong can afford more than 80,000 rupees from their hefty budgets to support this living national asset. If they have a corporate social responsibility department I hope they are listening.

It is pertinent for all of us to realize that we have already lost a great national asset in the past when Alam Channa, the then world’s tallest man succumbed to kidney failure. We shouldn’t leave Haq Nawaz alone in his time of need.
