The COVID 19 epidemic is growing exponentially, an outbreak that has already affected millions and took lives of thousands around the world has disrupted the health care system of the developed countries like China, United States, Italy. Pakistan was initially slow in spread majorly due to the limited availability of the testing facilities. In recent days the number of reported cases has significantly increased. Pakistan is not financially secure to support the damage cause by this deadly virus. Their healthcare system is incapable of handling the impending disaster and country can face a huge catastrophe. Healthcare providers are already short of supplies and are at a risk of getting infected and unintentionally spreading it to their patients. The authorities demanded the complete lock down of the country but government due to the financial health of a country is not supporting the idea and is of a view that the poverty in the country would kill more than the COVID 19 as there are no means to provide support to the daily wagers and the low income families of the country. Most of country population is living on a daily earnings. With the shutdown recently imposed by the government in major cities like Faisalabad, Islamabad, Lahore, Rawalpindi and Karachi a lot of daily wage workers and low income staff in Pakistan have been badly affected. Due to the shutdown in the businesses they do not have any means to support their families and children . Your little contribution to this cause goes a long way to put food on the table for affected families. The families in need who have lost their jobs due to the shutdown (school and noncritical businesses) have come on streets to ask for food and means of support. This will include the basic food items like Rice, wheat flour, Oil, all lentils, Salt, Sugar, Tea and powder milk. We will also provide them the soap and the basic knowledge on hygiene and most importantly how can they protect themselves from the deadly spread by staying home. Package per family will cost PKR 5000 = Rs 4000 (items)+ Rs 1000 cash Approx in other currencies: USD 40, CAD 50, GBP 30, Euro 35, SAR 125.
All the funds will be transferred to Pakistan through a proper banking channel where a team of dedicated people is ready to further distribute it amongst the needy families. I am regularly updating on the situation and what people are doing on site.
Again thank you so much as we cannot do anything without your support. Unfortunately, this is something that cant wait long, the situation is getting worse day by day and we not sure how long will it be like that. We have to start sending the funds to the ones in need and have to act fast.
Please spread the word and step forward in joining us for this wonderful cause!
