In the need of the hour, many people are coming forward and extending a helping hand to the people who are in desperate need during the time of the Coronavirus lockdown. Even Bollywood celebs like Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, Anushka Sharma, Kangana Ranaut and many more have already made a huge and generous contribution to the COVID-19 affected people. Happy New Year actor Sonu Sood had done his bit and that is by providing meals to 25k migrant workers during the holy month of Ramadan festival 2020.
According to the reports in Mumbai Mirror, a source told the outlet, “Someone reached out to Sonu explaining the plight of these migrant workers who hail from states like Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal and are currently stuck in Bhiwadi. He’s set up a few kitchens in the suburb to make and deliver meals to those keeping Roza.” The actor said that he has “assured them that their requirements for the holy month will be taken care of.”
In these difficult times, Sonu Sood thinks that “it is important for each one of us to stand up for the other.” And through this initiative, he will “provide special meal kits so they don’t stay hungry after fasting all day.”
Not only to those migrant workers but the actor has a target of providing 1.5 lakh meals in all, the report added. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, just like SRK who has provided his office as a quarantine facility for treating the patients, Sonu had also offered his hotel in Mumbai to medical professionals for the treatment of the affected patients.
For the same, the actor said that it is an honour to do his bit for the doctors, nurses and the para-medical staff of the country to Times of India. Sonu Sood has been providing meals to 45,000 Mumbaikars every day in Andheri, Jogeshwari, Juhu and Bandra.
