Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas set up a fundraiser to help India fight the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic

Priyanka Chopra added that unless everyone is safe, no one is safe.

The Global icon Priyanka Chopra took to her social media platforms on Wednesday to announce a fundraiser that she has set up to help India as the country faces the deadly second wave of the pandemic.
Sharing a video on Instagram, Priyanka said, “Why do we need to care? Why is it so urgent right now? I am sitting in London and hearing from my friends and family in India about how hospitals are at capacity, there are no rooms in ICUs, ambulances are too busy, oxygen supply is less, crematoriums having mass cremations because the volume of death is so much. India is my home and India is bleeding.”
Priyanka Chopra added that unless everyone is safe, no one is safe.
She said, “We, as a global community, need to care. And I’ll tell you why we need to care – because unless everyone is safe, no one is safe. So, please use your resources and focus your energy on helping stop this pandemic. Please donate. I understand a lot of people must be angry and thinking about, ‘Why are we in this place in the first place? Why is this happening?’ We will address that but after we stop the urgency. Please donate and please use your resources as much as you can. India needs you.”
Urging her followers to contribute towards the fundraiser, she also shared that she and her husband have already contributed and will continue to do so.
 She 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.”
