Are you thinking about a donation during COVID-19 crisis?
It has been two weeks, and we have entered the third one, to the lockdown after Corona Virus rooted its seed in Pakistan as well. The virus has been spreading all around the world and now Pakistan is under its grip too. The only way to stop it from spreading as fast as it is is by practising social distancing and taking care of our hygiene.
However, while being responsible citizens and protecting ourselves from getting the virus as well, let’s not forget there are people like daily-wagers who do not have means to go by. Those who are needy and are financially challenged are finding this time the hardest.
If you are someone who is struggling to get by, know someone who is or are looking to donate to the worthy causes helping these people. We have compiled the list of some of the best charity organizations helping those in need during the Corona Virus pandemic.
