In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared pandemic due to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and it resulted in the shutdown of every physical activity all over the world. At the beginning of the pandemic, VFAHT organized a massive campaign on awareness of COVID-19. This campaign consisted of both, online and on-ground projects. The online projects included webinars, COVID-19 help desk, info-posters, videos, animations, competitions, and interactive sessions in both languages (English and Urdu). The online campaign reached almost 30,000 people on Facebook. Each poster has a reach of 3.4k people.
On-ground projects included PPE Distribution Drive and Ration Distribution Drive. All local councils played a vital role to mitigate the spread of myths in public and provide authentic information to the local community.
