Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher has become the next person to praise the Pakistani polio worker who has been hailed as a national hero for striding through the harsh snow to deliver polio vaccines to children in far flung areas.

The actor lauded Irfanullah and called him a ‘hero’ as the polio worker waded through waist-deep snow in extreme weather conditions that had blocked all modes of transportation in order to deliver the vaccines.

Ashton turned to Facebook to applaud him and wrote: “This guy is a hero,” along with a video attached narrating Irfanullah’s story

The worker had garnered immense appraisal from around the country as well, including Prime Minister Imran Khan who invited him and his team to the PM House expressing gratitude for their services towards the eradication of polio from the country.
