PM Cares Fund
Maharashtra Chief Minister's Relief Fund
Give India, which is working non-stop to provide cash in the hands of daily wage workers who have lost their jobs and have no source of Income during the lockdown.
The Wishing Factory, who is doing remarkable work for thalassemia patient from the low-income group so that they receive a blood transfusion during the lockdown, especially since blood transfusion is not included in other essential services.
Federation of Western India Cine Employees- my industry's backbone. The people without whom no film can be shot/made. We all regard them as our family.
We can only fight COVID-19 if we stand united. I urge all of you to come forward and support the best of your abilities."
This is that time when all that matters is the lives of our people. And we need to do anything and everything it takes. I pledge to contribute Rs 25 crores from my savings to @narendramodi ji’s PM-CARES Fund. Let’s save lives, Jaan hai toh jahaan hai. 🙏🏻 https://t.co/dKbxiLXFLS— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) March 28, 2020
