“Your pm has put in place a corona relief fund to help the people of Pakistan. And I am asking you to donate generously. This will go a long way in helping Pakistan survive this coronavirus pandemic. It is time for us to be our brother’s keeper. Undoubtedly, your contribution could go a long way in helping Pakistan conquer this situation. And help so many people survive in this trying time,” Darren said.
