BEIJING: In an unprecedented move, Pakistani students in China put themselves in danger for sake of other students in fight against Coronavirus.
Four Pakistani students studying at China University of Geosciences, Wuhan put themselves in danger for sake of other students and volunteered during the fight against novel coronavirus outbreak.
These Pakistani students along with other international students from different countries, including Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Tanzania, Madagascar, Benin, Equatorial Guinea, Tajikistan, Jordan and Yemen carried out food delivery works for the international students staying in Wuhan, according to a report published by China Economic Net.
Besides taking orders, placing orders, receiving goods and delivering goods, sometimes volunteers have to sort and sub-package vegetables and even weight wheat flour.
The `Iron Men’ volunteer team was divided into several groups to offer better services for students, like food ordering group, daily necessaries purchasing group, supplies distributing group and girls’ group.
There are two students of the food ordering group in charge of ordering Non-Muslim food and Muslim food from CUG(Wuhan)’s canteens.
“I am responsible for ordering Muslim food,” said Ismail Shah, a Pakistani volunteer.
To facilitate food ordering, Shah created a group on WeChat, China’s most popular social media platform. Every night, students put their food orders for the next day in that group.
They pay for their orders by WeChat Pay or Alipay, China’s top two digital payments.
After that, Shah has to make a list of all the orders and send it to his teacher Luo Jingang. Mr Luo takes the charge of forward the list to the logistics department of CUG (Wuhan).
The department takes the order to canteens.
