Resumption Of Various Public Activities
COVID19 has hampered a lot of festive cheer for the past two years. Hence bouncing back to normalcy is making everyone excited. But at the same time, we need to maintain public health and safety. The nation is heading towards recovery, and we need to make efforts to push through.
Rather than serving iftar dishes in tents or mosques, humanitarian organisations brought iftar meals directly to individuals in need in 2020.
