Amitabh Bachchan has talked about his personal donations in the coronavirus outbreak. He has stated that his individual commitment to Covid-19 relief will be in the range of Rs. 15 crores.
After being regularly accused of negligence on social media, the actor was said to have recently donated Rs. 2 crores to a hospital in New Delhi, and on Monday noted down his charitable contributions during the pandemic.
He wrote in his most recent blog, “In this battle against this virus, many have contributed and continue to be resolved in more .. the mention in the information circles resounds with the 2 cr that I donated for the care Centre in Delhi for the moment .. but as days go by the figure of my personal contribution and donation shall be about 15 crore rupees ..” He further said, “Of course such figures are beyond my means, but I work and labor and resolve to dig into my earnings for those that need it most and with the kindness of the Almighty have been able to give this amount ..”
Amitabh wrote that if he is ‘able to muster more earnings,’ he will ‘aim to give more’. He gave an update on ongoing projects, such as oxygen concentrators and ventilators import and delivery. The KBC host also said, “The Oxygen Concentrators, another dire need, has also been put on a very fast track through suppliers from the overseas companies,” and concluded by saying, “Also I am happy to state that the 20 ventilators that I had ordered from overseas have started to arrive”.
