Help for needy
Mount Druitt businessman Ammar Khan plans to launch the Ammar Khan Foundation to provide services to those facing difficulties with employment, education, business, housing, welfare and immigration.
"I will stand up for the battler, I will support the hard worker," Mr Khan said.
"I am passionate about extending a helping hand to anyone facing difficulties or crises of any sort."
He will continue working on proposed major projects through his property development company, Urban Estate Developments, including the new Sydney's Wonderland theme park and major upgrades to local stations and Mount Druitt Hospital.
