The emergence of Coronavirus is threatening the whole world but its impact is most devastating in our part of the world; where the majority live below the poverty line. CLAAS with the support of its partners and friends was able to provide grocery packet with health and hygiene items to hundred (100) Christian families and 108 from other communities. These families were mainly from Lahore and its surrounding areas. These were the people who were already vulnerable and living under the poverty line and now they are fighting the battle against hunger, unemployment and high risk of being infected by this contagious virus due to non-availability of any protective items. During these challenging times every little support to these vulnerable groups revived their faith in humanity. Few of the individuals were also given financial support to pay off their monthly rent.
