Sanjana Sanghi, an actress, has partnered with Save The Children to help children and families from disadvantaged and impoverished communities in distant regions of India who have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
In India, the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic has claimed many lives. The virus is spreading to rural corners of the country, hitting many poor groups, as seen by the recent increase in cases.
Sanjana, in collaboration with an NGO, will focus on assisting the children and families of these impoverished villages. They want to reach one million people through their Protect A Million programme.
Sanjana used social media to urge others to donate to the humanitarian cause. She posted a video in which she expressed her feelings: “Together we will be providing Covid support in the form of oxygen, critical care, essential medicine, psycho-social support, and nutritional packages, to the most underserved and vulnerable communities which are children and their families in remote parts across 57 districts of India. Our aim is to reach One Million such children and families and we just can’t do this without you.”
She added, “Join me and save the children as we fight to protect the future and fight for hope. Every single penny, I promise you will better the life or save the lives of those for whom the basics like a thermometer, oximeter, a mask or medicine, are a huge huge privilege. Let’s open our hearts up, like we already have, and Help each other and fight for the children of our country.”
The actor had previously established her mental health initiative Here to Hear in order to raise awareness and give free mental health services in the wake of the epidemic.
Many Bollywood superstars, including Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Amitabh Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Varun Dhawan, Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, and others, have stepped forward to aid people who have been affected by the coronavirus epidemic. Many celebrities, including Katrina Kaif, Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt, Mira Rajput, and Bhumi Pednekar, have used social media to raise awareness for people in need.
