May 07 : Amid the country battling to face the acute shortage of medical essentials like oxygen, plasma, hospital beds and medicines, Bollywood celebs are chipping in to arrange resources for the needy. Besides helping the people of Mumbai, several Bollywood actors are trying to help people in Delhi, where there has been a raging oxygen crisis. Raveena Tandon has also joined hands with a foundation to donate oxygen cylinders amid the COVID 19 crisis.
Taking to her Instagram handle, the actress shared a couple of pictures, wherein she is seen standing with a Rudra Foundation volunteer, whom the KGF 2 actress donated a number of oxygen cylinders. Rudra Foundation has taken the initiative to transport oxygen cylinders from Mumbai to Delhi.
Raveena also shared a post wherein she gave the contact details of Rudra Foundation and urged her fans to donate and help the needy amidst the pandemic. While the actress arranged 100 cylinders, she urged her fans to help donate 300 more oxygen cylinders to New Delhi.
The mortality rate in the country is going up significantly and one of its major reasons being shortage of oxygen in hospitals. Actor Sonu Sood, who has been helping people amidst the pandemic since last year, took to Twitter and wrote, “Anyone who has lost a loved one due to scarcity of oxygen or injection, will never be able to live in peace all their life. They will always live with a feeling that they failed to save their family. I want to tell them.. You didn't fail, We did.”
Meanwhile, Sonu came to cricketer Suresh Raina’s help who urgently sought an oxygen cylinder for his family member. Suresh Raina tweeted and said that he needed an oxygen cylinder for his aunt in Meerut. “Urgent requirement of an oxygen cylinder in Meerut for my aunt. Age – 65 Hospitalised with Sever lung infection. Covid + SPO2 without support 70 SPO2 with support 91 Kindly help with any leads,” the cricketer wrote tagging the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister. Sonu promptly replied to the tweet and wrote, “Oxygen cylinder reaching in 10 mins bhai.”
