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, App reported.
According to the details, 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.
The ordered food would be brought to the gate of students’ dormitory at 11:30am, the next day. Then, it is time for the supplies distributing group to take over the delivering work.
Shah told CEN, “We are working in a proper way. Everyone has its own responsibility”.
He added, “besides routine responsibility, we also have unscheduled works, just like distributing wheat flour, rice, vegetables, cooking oil, eggs, fruits, etc”.
