Kyrie Irving Provides Hope in Pakistan

Say what you want about Kyrie Irving and his actions as a professional basketball player, but as a human being he has stepped up once again. This time, he and his charity have helped build a solar water center in Pakistan
The area of Thar, Pakistan has been facing a water shortage for nearly two decades and Irving's charity helped raise money to build the water center. Paani Project, a not-profit foundation, focuses on alleviating clean water inaccessibility, advocating for gender equity, and addressing a variety of pressing health disparity, teamed up with Irving to accomplish the goal of building the water center.
A ten-year pro and seven-time All-Star, Irving had one of his best statistical seasons this past year, averaging 26.9 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 6.0 apg on 50.6 FG% (career high). However, he only played in 54 of the Brooklyn Nets games and had one particularly notable absence in early January

Hopefully, people will remember this type of story the next time they give Kyrie a hard time about something that is far less important than clean drinking water.
