Wali, a Member of Namal Knowledge City and Chief Organizer for the 100 Cities Campaign in Singapore, is on a mission to inspire. He survived a life threatening motorbike accident on 18th July, 2018 and since then has fought a series of battles towards making a full recovery. Since that fateful day, he has been inspired to dedicate his life to supporting Namal.
