Penny Appeal helps needy people in over 30 crisis-hit countries worldwide. They help build wells, care for orphans, deliver urgent medical aid and healthcare, provide nutritious meals, open schools, orphanages and mosques, care for the elderly and much more.

Mehwish will be working as Goodwill ambassador for this global charity. She will play her role to improve the education sector in the rural areas of Sindh. She also emphasized on the need to educate young girls as they will be the one raising our next generations.

Talking to BBC World, Mehwish Hayat also discussed Kashmir Issue and the role of celebrities in promoting peace. The Tamgha-e-Imtiaz winning actress talked about the portrayal of Pakistanis as villains in Bollywood and Hollywood movies, the point she also raised in her speech in Norway.

Mehwish added that she’s been receiving a mixed response on this statement of hers from the other side of the border. However, she’s glad that the discussion has begun and it will surely have an impact in the future.

She said that artists carry a huge responsibility on our shoulders. They should be building bridges and be the torch bearers of peace.

Mehwish said that she wants to see the ‘right’ image of Pakistan to be portrayed because our country is more than terrorists and other stereotypical problems.

Talking about the Kashmir issue, Mehwish shared that she wants Kashmiri people to decide their fate and make decisions for their own. She also wants to see the political leaders coming on one platform to resolve this conflict
