The coronavirus pandemic has badly affected normal day life across the globe.
The people who are the most affected by this pandemic are the daily wagers, who doesn’t have any other choice to earn their livelihood apart from going out and work. But following the lockdown announced by the government in different parts of the country, this segment of our society could be starving in the days to come.
Thanks to some of the stars from our showbiz and cricket, these poor people are being helped as much as possible. Pakistani stars such as Maya Ali, Feroze Khan, Anoushey Ashraf, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanvir and Aleem Dar have come forward to provide free ration to the underprivileged people.
“Anyone wants to contribute in ration bags. It can be zakat also. I am getting ration bags made of basic necessities,” Feroze Khan wrote on his Instagram.
He later on shared that “Over 1100 bags have been sent out already.
Anoushey Ashraf and Maya Ali also posted on their social media regarding the help they are trying to provide to the daily wage workers.

This is the first batch of ration bags which has just arrived. It’s the right time when we should play our own part and shouldn’t wait for others to come and save people. It is a very crucial time and we should become one as a nation and stick together. Alhamdulillah I am glad that ALLAH has given me this opportunity to help those in need at a time like this. A few days ago I got this thought in my mind which I shared it with my friends @faizasaqlain_ and @saqlainhayder who also became a part of this… I am truly thankful to each and every single individual who donated and played their part even from outside Pakistan. We have no idea how long this will go on, but we have to stand together for those in need and are less fortunate. Insha ALLAH this all will end soon but until then we have to continue doing this… If any one wants to donate, please contact on this number and I’ll make sure this reaches the deserving affected people. I am going to attach the list of all the items which are included in a Rashan bag. Each rashan bag costs 5k, and if anyone wants to make their own Rashan bag and send that instead of money, you can do that also… Let’s become one nation to fight corona and win against it…. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Please send the picture of the receipt once you make the payment in this number. +923103111121 Bank Alfalah Nift code: 0530128 Branch name: Cavalry Ground Branch Lahore Name: FAIZA SAQLAIN Account: PK51ALFH0157001004713768 Branch code: 0157 Swift code: ALFHPKKA157

@ansarialert is an angel from heaven. It started with an idea of 50 bags! And even though we capped at 600 bags yesterday, we got donations from our friends for another 200 today and they’re still coming in! MashAllah. This all has happened and ration has reached @rha_pakistan and the @acfanimalrescueofficial and more will be delivered in the next two days! 800 families! May Allah be praised. REMEBER: This happened with ‘minimal’ interaction. I didn’t see even ONE donor, deliverer, carrier, packager, driver or receiver in person. Nomi’s two house guys (bless them) did the manual work with him overseeing the process. Just want to send a big shout to @unilever Pakistan @peekfreansofficial and @sooperpakistan for delivering goods to us! And then of course our Celebs, friends and family for donating so so generously! We could have never ever ever done this without each of you. What a dream!!!!!! #corona DONATIONS ARE NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC OR PEOPLE WE DONT KNOW PERSONALLY, my inbox is flooded and I know you mean well, but donate to the said organisations directly if you can! Good luck!
Cricket stars are also playing their part to provide maximum help to those in need during this difficult time. Shahid Afridi through his foundation is providing help in different parts of the country.
