A 70-year-old woman in Sukkur has made a video in which she has asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to help her during the coronavirus lockdown as she has no food at her home or money to pay for medical treatment.
She says that she prayed all night for Imran Khan’s health after he fell off a stage during his 2013 protest against the PML-N government in Islamabad.
The woman is a resident of the Sukkur’s Railway Colony and the mother of three sons who have all lost their jobs because of the lockdown.
After her message went viral, a team of Bait-ul-Mal approached her and gave her rations and some money. The team even promised to pay for her treatment once the COVID-19 situation is brought under control.
“Thank you Imran Khan,” she said after the team visited her. “I will always remember you in my prayers.”
Sindh Governor Imran Ismail, while speaking to SAMAA TV, said that PM Khan had contacted him after he saw the woman’s video and instructed him to help her. “I have tried my best, she needed some money and as soon as everything returns back to normal we will focus on her health,” he added.
