Bhumi Pednekar has been one celebrity that has been on the forefront when it comes to raising awareness or providing support to those in need during the coronavirus pandemic. She has been using her influence and social media for the good whether it is to make people aware of climate change, about proper sanitation, or the importance of education. Bhumi has once again come forward with an initiative to help out the underprivileged.
With coronavirus pandemic seriously impacting daily wage earners, the migrant labourers were travelling long distances on foot to get back home. Seeing the gut-wrenching images of the poor trying to get home on their bare feet along with their children, Bhumi couldn’t sit still. Being an ambassador for a footwear brand she called up the top bosses of the same brand tried to activate an initiative to help these people.
Bhumi and the footwear company, Lakhani, teamed up with The Robin Hood Army which is a volunteer-based, zero-funds organization spread across 12 countries in 180 cities for the activity. They helped about 1000 underprivileged people in and around Ghaziabad in Murad Nagar, Govindpuram, Vijay Nagar, and distributed footwear among men and women across age-groups.
You go, girl! More power to you, Bhumi. You are an inspiration to all of us.
