Karachi – “We must work in unity to overcome the challenges that people are facing in this global Covid-19 pandemic. Let us open our hearts and work to reach and serve people in need, without making any difference, regardless of one’s faith, ethnicity or social status”: says Cardinal Joseph Coutts, Archbishop of Karachi, to Agenzia Fides, inaugurating a food distribution in collaboration and partnership with the NGO “Jafaria Disaster Management Cell”, a welfare organization operating in Karachi. Social initiatives of this kind are multiplying in Pakistan, while the lockdown imposed by the government is having an impact above all on the poorest families and on all those who are employed in “informal” economy or work “by the day”.
