PM Khan said the situation in Pakistan is changing due to lockdown and poverty as businesses remain shut across the country.
“Pakistan needs you, donate in Corona Relief Fund”, PM said to the expats.
He hoped that Insha Allah Pakistan will overcome the pandemic with the help of overseas Pakistanis and Tiger Relief Force.
The decision to address overseas Pakistanis by PM Khan was taken after consultation with the SAPM Zulfi Bukhari amid coronavirus outbreak.
For the sake of donation collection, a website has been launched with the collaboration of the Overseas Ministry. The Pakistani expats can donate their funds on the website.
