We’ve all witnessed how the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted things around. Several Bollywood celebrities stepped up to help the ones who were most affected by the pandemic. From Sonu Sood to Huma Qureshi, celebrities did everything possible to help people who were in need of medical aid. As per the reports of Bollywood Hungama, Deepika Padukone has chosen to be a part of a new initiative that aims at helping frontline warriors.
The initiative along with the help of ‘Sangath‘ an NGO that focuses on providing help to the frontline workers to remain mentally strong during the pandemic. Deepika has joined hands with the NGO to support and reach out to the warriors who have been working tirelessly to serve the ones in distress. The initiative is named ‘Frontline Assist‘ and the money made through the ‘Deepika Padukone Closet’ will be given to Covid-19 well-being center through NGO Sangath.
The actress took to Instagram to post saying “Frontline workers have been the backbone of our country as we weather this pandemic. Having had a lived experience with mental illness, I understand the importance of emotional wellbeing, and as a mental health foundation, we are grateful to be able to contribute to the mental health of our country’s frontline workers with ‘Frontline Assist.’ We are proud to direct proceeds from ‘The Deepika Padukone Closet’ towards mental health support of our country’s real heroes through our partnership with Sangath.”
I am really very encouraged by the humanitarian act carried out by Deepika. With that said, hope you all are staying safe at home and taking care of yourselves. Always wear a mask when stepping out and sanitize your hands regularly.
