To date, from sending essentials kitchen market groceries to the doorstep of thousands of people countrywide to handing out cooked food to marginalized poor and homeless people were also confirmed. SAF has also provided their kind support with financial assistance to the jobless needy people through mobile banking during the lockdown period.

In addition to this, the consignment of lifesaving protective gears i.e. personal safety equipment or PPE were provided to healthcare givers- doctors and nurses, law enforcers, and journalists including other professionals working on the front lines to combat the pandemic.
