Raveena Tandon has set up a team and they are helping in arranging for oxygen cylinders for those who are in need. While speaking to ETimes, she said that while rich people have been paying for treatments, injections, the common man is struggling. “It is so disheartening. Hence, we have friends and volunteers pan India who are responding to requests daily. From oxygen kits to oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators, we are trying to put together everything possible,” she said. She urged people to come forward and help if they can, during this crucial hour.
Raveena Tandon has helped arrange for 300 oxygen cylinders for Delhi, and said that since hospitals are charging a huge amount, she and her team have been arranging oxygen cylinders for those who may be unable to afford it. “Hospitals are charging a bomb so we are arranging for oxygen cylinders that can directly be sent to those who may not afford it.
