Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah received an “anonymous” donation of Rs1 million for the Sindh Coronavirus Emergency Fund on Monday.
The CM shared this on social media and expressed his gratitude to the person who made the donation.
“Such acts of kindness strengthen our resolve to continue fighting this challenge, & reassure us that humanity stands tall during such extraordinary times,” he wrote alongside pictures of a cheque and a letter.
Meanwhile, the letter sent to the chief minister by the anonymous donor reads, “I am a retired person of 88 years. In response to your appeal, I submit herewith a cheque of a humble amount in face of the unheard and dreadful epidemic.”
Earlier, on March 17, the Sindh government had set up a ‘Coronavirus Relief Fund’ to fight the epidemic.
The provincial government’s spokesperson Murtaza Wahab in a tweet had said the Sindh chief minister, advisors, special assistants and all PPP MPAs will donate their one-month salary to the fund.
