The year 2020 has been bone-crunching for the world economy due the onset of the COVID-19 with big organizations restrategizing, laying off their workforce and slashing their marketing budgets by an extraordinary margin. In these circumstances, countries such as ours have been plagued by the worst possible disease: poverty.
A large percentage of the Pakistani workforce relies on daily wage earnings due to lack of education and high dependency on skilled labor. From fruit and vegetable vendors to painters, rickshaw drivers and housemaids, the lower socioeconomic strata of society has been bearing the brunt of this virus-inflicted lockdown that has seized their only source of livelihood.
We, as a society, need to understand our responsibility to help each other out in these times of need. Those individuals who have the incredible liberty of working from home need to acknowledge their privilege and pass on merely a fraction of that to those who desperately need it.

Each one of these NGOs is working diligently to uplift the status of vulnerable communities within our society, either through access to affordable education, healthcare or skill-based empowerment.
