The nation is facing a hard battle currently with the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. Providing relief to all those affected is crucial and the government would need contributions to tide over this crisis. While celebrities have been donating significant amounts for the relief fund, notably the Prime Minister’s newly launched PM-CARES, many are also helping on the ground level on a real-time basis.
The main worry at the moment is for the homeless and daily wage workers who are finding it hard to make two ends meet amid the ongoing 21-day lockdown. Prakash Raj was among those who came out in support of these affected persons.
The veteran shared that he has been feeding 250 homeless persons and daily wage workers at Kovalam in Thiruvananthapuram every day. The Singham star shared pictures from the distribution and wrote that it was not just the government’s responsibility, but also ours. Urging all to help one family around them, he wrote that everyone needed to ‘celebrate humanity.’
