Let's Unite To Fight Corona

Problem Statement: Major panic in masses regarding food and hunger issue, shortage of PPE

COVID 19 is an unprecedented pandemic and the whole world is struggling to fight it. Pakistani authorities are putting up a great fight but it is not something they can fight alone on their own. In this hour of crisis we initiated our campaign Let's Unite to Fight Corona (#covid19). We are supporting Pakistan government institutions in this fight against corona. We believe unity is the key to fight this, we can only fight this if we can pool in our resources and give a collective effort. We need to support our daily wagers and most importantly people on front line who are fighting day and night i.e. Doctors, Nursing staff, Security forces and relief workers.

Impact Area: Emergency Relief

Target Group: Daily Wagers & Front liners ( Doctors, Paramedic Staff, Rescue Services)

Proposed Solution:
1.      Awareness Sessions & Food Supplies for Daily wagers and struggling class: Covid 19 is taking over the world, In Pakistan with each passing day number is increasing, Businesses are closing down, companies have started downsizing and daily wagers are the ones facing scarcity of food so we are working with different stakeholders in finding families and providing food packs keeping social distancing in place.

2.      Medical Supplies and Safety gears for Front line warriors: Globally there’s a shortage of medical supplies PPE and masks Particularly. Pakistan being a textile country so we thought we got in touch with textile industry and shared specifications of PPEs and were able to get required PPEs. After procuring PPEs we contacted different vendors and were able to procure N95 masks, Kn95 masks, surgical masks, gloves, Face shields, goggles. Now we are working with more than 100 hospitals in Pakistan and providing medical supplies to people on frontline. With hospitals we are equipping emergency relief units as well.

 Activities: Food Packs distribution, Awareness ses sions and PPEs distribution.

Short-term goals/results: Food and Hunger issues were entertained and awareness was created.
