Jacqueline Fernandez recently launched her welfare foundation YOLO ( You Only Live Once). The foundation is working endlessly to help people in need. The actress is currently in Mumbai helping one of Ghatkopar’s Covid care centers.

Jacqueline opened up on what her foundation is looking to work on and in an interview with a leading entertainment website, she explained what YOLO plans to do in near future. Currently, the actress is making efforts to get a toll-free number registered for people to call when they are in need of help.

When asked about YOLO and its work so far, the actress said-

It’s going to be an uphill battle but we are working on getting 100 hospital beds. We also plan to bring in over 500 oxygen concentrators. Currently, we’ve added two ambulances and are trying to look more what more we can bring in to help the people in need.

I heard that people are not able to afford ambulances because of the rate they charge. People have been losing lives because of this and it’s truly disheartening and so we have started to provide free ambulance services. The ambulances are loaded with necessary medicine and equipment.

YOLO was originally supposed to be a foundation that would focus on other issues however, the need of the hour was to help for Covid relief as the country is going through such an unprecedented crisis. In the future, Jacqueline and YOLO will join hands to fight against other causes as well. The actress has also collaborated with Roti Bank Foundation for a drive to feed the needy amid the pandemic. She plans on distributing 1 lakh free meals, feeds the strays, and donate masks, sanitizer,s and raincoats to Mumbai police in these testing times.

Note: We urge you all to stay safe and follow all the necessary safety precautions. Times are tough but we are in this together and I’m sure very soon this phase will be over too. Until then, stay safe and keep your loved ones safe!
