Many celebrities are coming forward to help those in need in tough times of Coronavirus. As the lockdown has affected the economy and quite a few are suffering, celebrities are making as much donation as possible to help the needy to sail through this tough time. This time we have the story of TV actress Saumya Tandon who has come forward to distribute face masks and shields to those who are in the frontline, helping the nation to cope with the deadly virus.
Saumya teamed up with a 15-year-old boy from her building who started with a fundraiser to buy face masks and distribute in the public. In an interview with Mirror Online, Saumya spoke about this young boy striving to help society and said, "Ryan Puramia, a 15-year-old from my building, started the initiative to raise funds and distribute face shields and masks. I received the message on the building WhatsApp group about raising funds and joined hands with him in this initiative. We started a campaign and got supporters and money for the cause. I went and distributed these masks and shields, which are FDA approved and are of very good quality with seven layers, washable and reusable. We have already ordered 5000 of them, out of which we have, by now, distributed 2000."
The actress further went on to speak about providing PPE Kits to doctors and nurses. Saying that her heart goes out to these warriors who are working hard to keep the patients safe, the Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain actress said, "We know that the PPE kits can only be used by a doctor on one shift and after that, it has to be disposed of. We have a scarcity of PPE kits for doctors and nurses."
We wish her luck. (Also Read: Saumya Tandon On Her Return To Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain With Her Son: "Won't Compromise On Breastfeeding, Will Shoot Less And Nearer Home")
