It’s thanks to all of you that we raised these funds and are able to send concentrators where they are needed. I will keep posting updates. A big shout out to all of you and @ANNADA_outreach for their tremendous support. #helpindiabreathe pic.twitter.com/eZSYmX5neR

Their humanitarian work is truly inspiring and it surely motivates me to help someone, even if it’s in the smallest way possible. We definitely need more and more people like them to come forward and help the nation fight the battle against Covid-19. On that note, hope everyone is staying safe at home and taking care of themselves.
