Huma Qureshi, who will soon be seen in Army of the Dead directed by Zack Snyder, has partnered with Save the Children, with a 100-year legacy of responding to children in crisis.
This time geared up to help Delhi fight the pandemic by raising funds for a 100-bed hospital to reduce the burden on the national capital’s health infrastructure.
Huma, a native of New Delhi, has been working on this initiative with Save the Children for an all-encompassing solution that will provide much-needed hope amid the death and despair caused by COVID-19.
The emergency medical facility equipped with skilled health professionals, medical equipment (including its oxygen plant) will provide crucial, equitable, and life-saving care and treatment to Delhi’s most disadvantaged children and communities.
Many of Huma’s friends from the film fraternity have come out in support including Sonakshi Sinha, Mudassar Aziz, Jay Shewakramani, Arjun Kapoor, Monisha Advani, Rohit Dhawan, Hansal Mehta, Ramesh Taurani, Dia Mirza, Anisha Padukone, Shweta Nanda, and Saqib Saleem.
Save the Children, with their experience in responding to a humanitarian crisis, have provided critical care and services to the most disadvantaged children and their families since the pandemic hit in 2020 reaching 5.57L children.
In their response to the second covid wave, Save the Children, has launched a mission to #ProtectAMillion and their commitment to reach an additional 1 million (10 Lakh) children and their families in 57 districts across 14 states and 2 UTs. The collaboration with Huma will help Save the Children get closer to its mission to protect a million.
