To help citizens coup with this dangerous levels of heat, common Karachites are figuring out various ways to help. A car service station owner turned shut down his service station during the day to offer free showers to the public.
Mr. Jawad who runs a small service station below the Banaras Pull right next to Metro Cinema is playing his part in making sure no one suffers from a fatal heatstroke.
During the day he shut off his service station and gave free showers to people around the area to make sure they stay safe.
