The coronavirus scare is might be big, but it is definitely not bigger than the spirit of the Pakistani nation. They have defeated many challenges in the past and they are facing the virus challenge with the same courage. A local postmaster is also setting one such example.
Malik Ghulam Sarwar, who works as postmaster in Dera Ghazi Khan, is out on the streets when everyone is in their homes and distributing pensions so that people don’t have to suffer when they need money the most. He didn’t even care about the bad weather and distributed pensions in rain. Sarwar is an employee of Pakistan Post.

When the country is busy honoring doctors and medical staff for their tireless efforts, such unsung heroes also need to be recognized and appreciated in whatever way is possible. People like Sarwar are not only risking their lives, they are showing the importance of professional responsibilities.
The closure of businesses under lockdown is the worst thing to happen as the daily wagers are now struggling to survive. However, the coronavirus crisis has brought the best in Pakistanis as several local celebrities and sports personalities have also hopped onto the helping bandwagon, providing ration to the needy.
