In response to COVID-19 outbreak, Caritas Pakistan Karachi distributed 25 food packages among the daily wagers and most vulnerable families of St. Thomas’s Parish of the Archdiocese in Karachi on 24th of June, 2020 under our COVID-19 Emergency response Program.

“Peoples are staying at home; they cannot go to work because of the lock-down. Their capacity to buy food for their families is weakening,” said Mr. Mansha Noor Executive Secretary Caritas Pakistan Karachi.

Rev. Fr. Anthony Abraz Parish Priest St. Thomas’ Parish thanked Caritas Pakistan for distributing food among the needy and most deserving families of the parish. Caritas Pakistan Karachi Team including John Rehmat (program Coordinator), Sarfraz Anwar (Diocesan Project Officer) and Salem Daleep registered the beneficiaries and joined Church leaders in handing over food hampers.

The printed IEC material of Caritas Pakistan about coronavirus awareness was also shared with people in a short awareness session.
