The coronavirus has created fear and panic on a global scale. As like most countries worldwide, Pakistani too has initiated a nationwide lock-down and quarantine to protect its populace. While most of us are bound at home, everyone’s main concern is about keep ourselves entertained to pass the time. Pakistani actress Ayeza Khan has a far greater concern though.
Ayeza is dreading a possibility of increased suicide rates in Pakistan. This is for people with little to no resources during the lock-down days.
It rarely crosses our minds as to how poor people, those without a regular income, are living at the moment. There is a high chance of people not being able to feed themselves while locked up at home. Thus, it would not be far-fetched to imagine people taking their own lives when they can’t provide for themselves or their families.
The Mere Paas Tum Ho actress is very keen on shedding light on this issue as she has been very active on her social media about advocating kindness and charity during this crisis.
Recently, Ayeza took to her Instagram to urge fans and followers to give charity as much as possible. She stated that helping out is important as the nation is confined within their homes. It is essential to stay indoors, but less privileged are being affected as they no longer have the resources to feed themselves or their families.
She emphasized that we all need to look around and ensure that those less fortunate people are being taken care of as well. Check out the post:
Her post is a much-needed call for action for us as a nation to come together and do our part in ensuring that the poor do not die of hunger due to quarantine.
