Priyanka Chopra Jonas has set up a foundation ‘GiveIndia’, uniting her fans to join hands to fight against the deadly virus. The actress commands over huge followers on her Instagram and Twitter account and urged them to donate and help India to overcome the crisis.
Priyanka Chopra took to her Instagram account and informed about the crisis and how urgent it is to help India. She mentioned how hospitals are overburdened; no ICUs are available, ambulances are too busy, the supply of oxygen is less, mass cremations happening because the death volume is huge. She further added that people need to come together as a world community and should use their resources to stop the pandemic.
She captioned her post as, “India, my home, is suffering the world’s worst covid crisis, and we all need to help! People are dying in record numbers. There is illness everywhere, and it’s only continuing to spread and kill at great speed and scale. “
She shared the details about the foundation she has set up to collect the funds and wrote, “I have set up a fundraiser with GiveIndia, the largest organization on the ground in India providing Covid relief. Whatever you can spare, truly makes a difference. Nearly 63 million people follow me on here, if even 1,00,000 of you donate $10 that’s $1 Million, and that’s huge. Your donation will go directly to healthcare physical infrastructure (including covid acre centers, isolation centers and oxygen generation plants), medical equipment and vaccine support and mobilization.”
She urged fans to donate to whatever capacity they can and wrote, “Please please donate. Nick and I already have and will continue to contribute. We have all seen how far and wide this virus can spread, an ocean between us makes no difference. No one is safe unless everyone is safe. It’s so heartening to see so many people stepping up to help in so many ways. We need to beat this virus, and to do that requires ALL of us. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!”
Earlier, Priyanka urged the World Health Organization (WHO) to provide vaccines of novel corona virus to India on an urgent basis. She also alleged that in such a grave situation, the government of United States has requested 550 million more vaccines than required.
She tweeted, “My heart breaks. India is suffering from COVID 19 and the US has ordered 550M more vaccines than needed @POTUS @WHCOS @SecBlinken @JakeSullivan46 thx for sharing AstraZeneca worldwide, but the situation in my country is critical. Will you urgently share vaccines w/ India? #vaxlive.”
Priyanka Chopra is currently in London with her husband Nick Jonas. The actress is helping provide covid resources on her social media accounts to help the people affected with the novel corona virus across the country.
