Just like the rest of us, Pakistan’s top celebrities have all been told to stay at home during these strangest of times.
However, some of these musicians, actors, and artists have decided to aid the less privileged ones in this difficult time.
There are a few celebrities that are assisting with providing rations to the less fortunate amid all the panic buying and buyouts.
This situation was followed by a lockdown, although this won’t leave an impact on those who have stocked up on supplies but this will affect the underprivileged.
This is our country and who will help it if we won’t?
Have a look at these heroes!
1. Feroze Khan
The actor shared on his Insta story writing ”anyone wants to contribute in ration bags. It can be zakat also. I am getting ration bags made of basic necessities.”

@ansarialert is an angel from heaven. It started with an idea of 50 bags! And even though we capped at 600 bags yesterday, we got donations from our friends for another 200 today and they’re still coming in! MashAllah. This all has happened and ration has reached @rha_pakistan and the @acfanimalrescueofficial and more will be delivered in the next two days! 800 families! May Allah be praised. REMEBER: This happened with ‘minimal’ interaction. I didn’t see even ONE donor, deliverer, carrier, packager, driver or receiver in person. Nomi’s two house guys (bless them) did the manual work with him overseeing the process. Just want to send a big shout to @unilever Pakistan @peekfreansofficial and @sooperpakistan for delivering goods to us! And then of course our Celebs, friends and family for donating so so generously! We could have never ever ever done this without each of you. What a dream!!!!!! #corona DONATIONS ARE NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC OR PEOPLE WE DONT KNOW PERSONALLY, my inbox is flooded and I know you mean well, but donate to the said organisations directly if you can! Good luck!
This boss lady teamed up with designer Nomi Ansari to provide rations amongst the needy.

This is the first batch of ration bags which has just arrived. It’s the right time when we should play our own part and shouldn’t wait for others to come and save people. It is a very crucial time and we should become one as a nation and stick together. Alhamdulillah I am glad that ALLAH has given me this opportunity to help those in need at a time like this. A few days ago I got this thought in my mind which I shared it with my friends @faizasaqlain_ and @saqlainhayder who also became a part of this… I am truly thankful to each and every single individual who donated and played their part even from outside Pakistan. We have no idea how long this will go on, but we have to stand together for those in need and are less fortunate. Insha ALLAH this all will end soon but until then we have to continue doing this… If any one wants to donate, please contact on this number and I’ll make sure this reaches the deserving affected people. I am going to attach the list of all the items which are included in a Rashan bag. Each rashan bag costs 5k, and if anyone wants to make their own Rashan bag and send that instead of money, you can do that also… Let’s become one nation to fight corona and win against it…. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Please send the picture of the receipt once you make the payment in this number. +923103111121 Bank Alfalah Nift code: 0530128 Branch name: Cavalry Ground Branch Lahore Name: FAIZA SAQLAIN Account: PK51ALFH0157001004713768 Branch code: 0157 Swift code: ALFHPKKA157
This starlet also partook in the process of helping the underprivileged.
