The world is suffering under the dreadful spell of coronavirus! The country needs your help. The less fortunate with no food, no shelter, no medical attention desperately need to be rescued by those who can.

Several COVID-relief trust funds have been set up to facilitate contributions, including the Prime Minister's Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund (PM CARES) to enable citizens to contribute to government’s containment and relief efforts against the COVID-19 outbreak.

On your part, have you voluntarily donated towards any corona relief fund? If not, then why? Especially in times of curb on movement with only designated teams reaching out to ensure order, how have you contributed to the betterment of society and to stop the virus? Spare a thought for the frontline workers, for the homeless and hungry. Remember every rupee counts in these tough times.
