Extend a Helping Hand During COVID-19…

Our true test is during adversity and helping other during trying times is being humane in the truest sense of the word! While the medical fraternity, police, civic authorities, pharmacists, essentials vendors etc. are valiantly doing their duties it is high time that we too pitch in – and we can do so virtually without stepping out of our houses during the lock down period. 

Here’s sharing information about how -
