Amid the Coronavirus crisis in India, Sonu Sood has been relentless in his humanitarian efforts and has been helping all those in need of medical resources amid this challenging time. Apart from that, a few days ago, he also appealed to the state and central government to ensure that free education is provided to those children who have lost their parents to COVID-19. Now, Sonu Sood has received support from Priyanka Chopra, who called him a ‘visionary philanthropist’ and shared the video of his appeal on her Instagram account.
Priyanka Chopra, in her caption, wrote that she is inspired that Sonu Sood made this observation, and has also thought of a solution and came up with suggestions for action. “Sonu’s suggestion is to both the state and central governments to ensure free education for all children affected by Covid. Whatever stage of studies they are at—school, college, or pursuing higher studies. The aim is not to allow a pause and definitely not for the lack of finance. If ignored, a huge number of children would be left without the opportunity as adults,” wrote Priyanka.
Priyanka further wrote that she fully supports Sonu Sood’s ideas and will actively work towards finding ways to support education for kids as it is their birthright.
Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani also replied to Priyanka Chopra’s post, and shared child helpline number. The comment has now been pinned by Priyanka Chopra, and it reads, “Kindly call 1098 - Childline in case you or any organisation finds a child who is orphaned. Every state government and district authority is on alert to help provide support to children in need and distress . Every district has been directed to ensure that Child Welfare Committees in the district prioritise such children. Withholding such information would be detrimental to the needs of the child hence my plea.” ALSO READ: Sonakshi Sinha Urges ‘People In Power’ To Consider Sonu Sood’s Appeal For Free Education To Kids Who Lost Their Parents To COVID-19
