Sonu Sood’s newly-started endeavour to connect the distressed with the correct source of help is going great guns. He takes time off from his hectic schedule to tell me. “24x7 I am on the phone, trying to cope with the enormity of this pandemic. Trying to provide, hospitals beds, injections, medicines, oxygen. I know that people from all over the country are struggling trying to find the right channels to source their needs. We are instrumental in bringing the needy together with those willing to provide help.”
Sonu’s army of Covid warriors is growing. “We’ve the top 25-30 technicians to make this happen. We’ve created a support system where separate state-wise, we are looking at the pandemic needs for plasma, injections, oxygen etc.”
Those providing help in this time of unprecedented crisis are fully authenticated. “It’s not just about a random call coming in to offer help. We verify the source offering help before putting it out there. If someone from Patna or Bhatinda calls for a hospital bed or a ventilator we immediately connect them to the right source for what is needed. It is a very authentic highly professional platform.”
Sonu is glad his 24x7 endeavour to help the needy has inspired others like Gurmeet Chowdhary. “In fact we need many many more celebrities and influencers to come forward to offer help.”
The indefatigable Covid warrior says he is not at all daunted by the growing demand on his time and attention from the needy. “The best part of helping the needy is that the more you do it the more there is to do. The need grows, and so does the number of people coming forward to help. Our initiative to create a community of the needy and the helpers is self-sufficient. Our technical, suppliers vendors are all in place. We are a growing community of the needy and support providers.”
