While we practice self-isolation by being in quarantine in the comfort of our homes, not having to worry about our next meal or how we must feed our families tomorrow – it would not be incorrect to say that more often that not, at some point, the thought of what the less privileged must be going through in these challenging times has crossed our mind. And really…what about them? Especially those who are daily wage earners with many mouths to feed. How is the lockdown and quarantine treating them? This is where some our favourite celebrities came forward to help and support such people by collecting and distributing ration.
Nomi Ansari and Anoushey Ashraf
The duo donated almost 800 bags of ration in collaboration with The Robinhood Academy.
Not only did the Mere Paas Tum Ho starlet collect ration bags but also free medicines for the needy and under privileged in these challenging times.
Singing sensation Ali Zafar and wife Ayesha Fazli have also come together to collect and distribute ration bags inclusive of essentials.
Feroze Khan also took part in the initiative and implored fans to donate as he posted a donation note on his Instagram.
Maya Ali and Faiza Saqlain
Maya Ali and designer buddy, Faiza Saqlain also came together and made a contribution of several batches of ration bags.
Shahid Afridi went out of his way and distributed ration bags himself with the team of his welfare
foundation ‘Shahid Afridi Foundation’.
Even though Amir Khan was unable to distribute ration bags, he donated 40 million to the Coronavirus Emergency Fund set up by the Pakistani government which essentially focuses on taking measures to help those in need in these challenging times. He also offered his 4 story building to be used as a quarantine center.
Aisam Ul Haq and Shiza Hassan
Tennis sensation Aisam Ul Haq and designer Shiza Hassan came together in collaboration with Rizq to feed at least 10,000 people at this time of crisis.
You can also be a part of this initiative of distributing essentials to the needy by making donations. Remember, every effort counts!
