How people and communities respond to the coronavirus challenge, worldwide
This page is dedicated to the people and communities who are fighting against the coronavirus outbreak with courage, hope and compassion. Faced with unprecedented challenges, including lockdown, loss of income, shortage of food supply and even death, some people and communities across the globe are determined to win the battle against coronavirus. They are however, not fighting alone, but with a collective spirit. They may be locked down physically, but their hearts, minds and souls have rejected to be confined and passive. In fact, in many ways, they have become more extrovert and outward focused than usual - thinking, feeling and caring for others in time of need.

Outside grocery stores in Karachi, a remarkable scene has been unfolding over the past two weeks.
