Actor and philanthropist Sonu Sood recently took to Twitter and penned a heartfelt post while expressing his sadness of not being able to arrange a bed for a patient. The actor shared a screenshot of his conversation with the patient on WhatsApp who relied on the actor for medical assistance. In the chats, the needy person who needed a bed for her sister wrote that he is ‘depending on him’ and since Sonu has helped millions, he could help him as well. The actor expressed his ‘helplessness’ and wrote how sometimes he wishes to have a ’magic wand’ to do away with the agony of the people.
Sharing his thoughts, the actor wrote, “When I fail to get an ICU bed for someone who needs it the most & want to save a loved one, I feel so helpless. Wish I had a magic wand & everything could fall right but the reality is I will sleep with a prayer to give me time till tomorrow. I will make it happen. Just pray.” Further, giving an update about the bed, the actor shared another tweet and informed that finally they could arrange for a bed and the treatment has begun. “And yes.. we got the bed. The day begins on a positive note.”
