As the country faces acute oxygen shortage and a surge in Covid-19 cases, Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon has arranged for a truck full of cylinders that will be delivered straight to those in need.
She reveals, “Hospitals are charging a bomb so we are arranging for oxygen cylinders that can directly be sent to those who may not afford it. We have been in touch with cops and NGOs to break the chain and operate smoothly. Our first lot that is ready for transport for Delhi includes 300 oxygen cylinders.”
Going that extra mile, Raveena Tandon recently ensured that medical help reached Padma Bhushan, late Pandit Rajan Mishra in Delhi, who passed away due to health complications.
The actress shared a poster on Instagram that showed that Raveena donated the oxygen cylinders to ‘Oxygen Seva on the wheels’ from Mumbai to Delhi that is supported by Delhi Police, Utsab Bains, and team for the needy.
The actress in the caption revealed that she has a target of 500 cylinders, out of which 100 have been arranged and they are now looking forward to helping others to arrange for 400 more cylinders. The actress shared that the first lot of the cylinders is on its way and will reach Delhi soon.
Apart from Raveena Tandom several other celebrities also came forward to help the country amid the ongoing crisis.
Singer Sonu Nigam recently teamed up with young golfer Krishiv to provide oxygen concentrators.
On the other hand, chef Vikas Khanna who is living in the USA recently informed about sending oxygen concentrators, ventilators, and personal protective equipment to India to help the country combat the life-taking virus.
Earlier, Raveena also highlighted the importance of getting a vaccine as India fights a deadly COVID-19 second wave. She said that she is disturbed by people’s attitudes towards vaccination.
According to her, “Vaccination is the need of the hour. The more people get vaccinated, the better. Thankfully the hesitation towards vaccination is waning. People need to know that vaccines are the only things right now that will protect us from this fatality.”
