Earlier, Sonu and his team of volunteers in Bengaluru provided more than 16 oxygen cylinders to a hospital in the city, saving 20-22 Covid-19 patients’ lives. Sonu Sood has recently managed to arrange over 100 requests for Remdesivir injections and oxygen and over 500 pleas for beds, but disappointed as he couldn’t make it possible for all. He made headlines for his philanthropy work last year where he reached out to migrant workers and helped them reach back home. He has helped thousands of people to reach back their homes, provided medical and educational support.
Sonu has been helping people with medical emergencies during the second wave of coronavirus. Apart from Sonu, Amitabh Bachchan is also doing his bit to help the country battle the crisis. Sara Ali Khan contributed to the Covid-19 relief foundation of Sonu Sood. Yash Raj Films pledged to vaccinate the daily workers of the entire Hindi film industry. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have also started their fundraiser and have themselves contribute Rs 2 crore.
