Our world has completely changed, suddenly come to a standstill. It is as if the electricity has gone off. Many people have been assuring us these days that “we are all in it together.” Really? And while the virus does not discriminate among Hollywood celebrities, politicians, millionaires, or the underprivileged, the worst hit are the poor and the daily wage earners who do not have the option of working from home. Sat home, stay safe? What about the grossly inadequate housing? Where should they go if they are infected with the virus? The citizens of this country are making sure that they reach out to those in need with all the essentials.
