Crises come and go but what is always remembered is how nations dealt with it. The coronavirus disease also did not fail to bring out the best in Pakistanis. An 88-year-old anonymous donor has just gave the Sindh government a million rupees to beat COVID-19.
Pakistan, along with other countries has taken strict measures to defeat the deadly pandemic. The virus until today has already killed thousands of people worldwide and six in the country.
Sindh is currently under lockdown for the last two days after the PPP-led provincial government urged the citizens to remain indoors. However, many are out there to help support the provincial in these trying times.
On Tuesday, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah took to Twitter and announced the news of an anonymous donation to the Sindh Coronavirus Emergency Fund.
Although the person donating this generous amount to Sindh’s #coronavirus fund asked to not disclose their name,I’d like to thank them.And to all others who are contributing to the Fund.Thank you! Your contributions will surely make a difference!Let’s fight #coronovirus together! https://t.co/Y6LTnoj0mr

At a time, when coronavirus is expected to cause economic mayhem, the government of Pakistan on Tuesday also announced a hefty relief package. However, such an act of kindness by the anonymous donor will definitely strengthen the resolve of the nation to continue fighting the challenge ahead.
