Terminally Ill Pakistani Teen Anwar Ullah, 17, Meets Malala

Same Difference

A terminally ill teenage boy from Pakistan has been flown to Birmingham to fulfil his dying wish to meet the Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.

Anwar Ullah, 17, suffers from a rare form of lung cancer. His meeting with Malala was arranged by the Make A Wish Foundation.

The pair spent an afternoon chatting and playing board games.

In 2012, Miss Yousafzai was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for demanding that girls be allowed to receive an education.

After the visit, Anwar Ullah said, “My dream has come true.”
