The pandemic has affected us in different ways. While some of us are happy working from home, there are people out there who can’t afford to do the same, owing to the nature of work. Those who survive on a daily wage have gone into quarantine just like all of us, so how will they eat?
Amidst this lockdown situation nationwide, celebrities are distributing ration bags to the underprivileged who cannot otherwise put food on their tables. Feroze Khan was first to kick-start this trend, and others have started following. Feroze announced it on his Instagram story, asking people if they wished to contribute and do good for humanity. He wrote:
Anyone wants to contribute in ration bags. It can be zakat also. I am getting ration bags made of basic necessities. Pls contact me if anyone is interested to contribute.
He managed to get 100 ration bags across to the deserving families, which a great start. A job well done, Feroze!
The ‘Teefa in Trouble’ actress Maya Ali also jumped onto the bandwagon and had ration bags made and delivered to her house for dispatch. She shared the photos on her Instagram yesterday, and captioned it:
This is the first batch of ration bags which has just arrived. It’s the right time when we should play our part and shouldn’t wait for others to come and save people.
We sure need to come together during these trying times and help those in need. Not everyone can survive a lockdown unless of course, we help them in some way. We can all do our bit, can’t we?

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....
