Actress Saumya Tandon has urged people to contribute towards healthcare kits for frontline workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
The initiative was started by a young student who lives in her building and Saumya was more than willing to help out in all ways possible.
“A boy who stays in my building has started this initiative and we must support it wholeheartedly. In times like these, humanity must rise to the occasion and I’m sure we will raise enough funds to procure the kits,” she said.
Joining hands with 15 yr Ryan Punamia’s endeavour to raise funds to give PPE Kits/masks to frontline warriors risking their lives to protect ours. Ryan’s sensitivity at a young age is commendable, I just had to help in anyway I could. You can too here https://t.co/0fQF31VSKd pic.twitter.com/SswrbSuQUB
