    I am the resident of Pakistan where a lot of conflicts exist at all levels lead to gross infliction, physical as well as mental resulting in ruining the lives of innumerable children. The tragedy is that there is no organization working in mitigating the conflicts among various ethnic groups. I wish to do maximum in this connection if I have a sport of some organization.
