Please reach out and call the National Child Helpline (1098) to inform regarding children who are alone because of Covid-19. We cannot even begin to fathom the trauma,”

Nation has recorded its highest number of COVID-19 patients recently, it’s been hard for the nation to cope up with the shortage of Vaccines, irregular supply of Oxygen and unavailability of beds at hospitals. Meanwhile many Indian Celebrities and Businesses persons stood firm and contributed their donations in form of finance as well as materialistic aids for the patients, many of the celebs through their social media accounts are helping to get beds for patients through verified resources. Kareena recently has posted a small clip on Instagram from the famous cartoon ‘Tom and Jerry’ hoping to aware and educate citizens about the Vaccination programs.

Kareena believes that even the kids have been grasping the various information around them about the pandemic and they to some extent know what’s happening around them. “We don’t realise that our kids are also absorbing what’s going on and they are scared too. We were talking to Tim to try and explain why all the adults need to be vaccinated and I think this sums it up pretty well. It’s really that simple. But as we explain to our kids, we too need to be patient and help everyone who is trying to help us — medics, pharma, authorities and the millions of volunteers — please register and wait for your turn. #BreakTheChain,” she captioned the video.
