With half the world placed under coronavirus lockdown, people are finding it hard to cope with their daily basic needs, especially the poor, who are the most affected section of society.

The family took to Facebook to ask people for donations and also offered free food to those in need.

The post was first shared on Facebook on March 26 and has since garnered 69 reactions, 27 comments, 13 shares.
