In recent weeks, Shanghai the once vibrant, and economic hub of China has become an epicentre of the covid19 with deafening silence since Wuhan. The city has gone under 7 + 7 total a lockdown after 48hr closure Grid management. Shanghai is a cosmopolitan city with local Shanghainese mixed with people from other parts of China and across the world. Often for its booming economic opportunities, vibrant nature and rapid infrastructure development. It has indeed become the home for many.


When challenges befall it takes a collective positive attitude to heal and soldier through to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Answering the call to action, THPers in shanghai put on their brave wings to render selfless support to their respective communities. For a city that has given life and livelihood to millions, it’s only right and human to support each other in the best way possible.
