The entire world is gripped under the steadily escalating situation of the Coronavirus COVID-19. More than 11000 people have already died due to the rising pandemic, with the virus proliferating in more than 100 countries.

From schools, colleges, offices, libraries to sporting events, everything has been under lockdown, as the world grapples with the virus, that emerged from the Wuhan city of China late last year. One of the biggest casualties of the lockdown has been the poor, who rely on day-to-day earnings for their bread and butter.

With people ‘panic buying’, the poor have been struggling for basic necessities. Pakistan has seen more than 900 Coronavirus cases and with the poor people unable to get the basic things, former cricketer Shahid Afridi took it upon himself to distribute rations to 200 families in the country.
