Kher’s foundation will oversee the initiative. They will donate life-sustaining instruments and surgical supplies to needy organisations and hospitals in India.

The actor says, “We will be identifying people and hospitals across the country, who need help right now. I am happy to be collaborating with them and distributing the materials to hospitals. This is just the beginning and we plan to do more. We want to help the right people. I posted asking for volunteers on social media and I was pleasantly surprised that 300 people came forward to help us. I believe that people want to help others in any whatever manner possible.”

Kher continues, “Right now, in this moment of crisis, we all need to come together and support each other. The government is doing its bit and we have to do ours too as it is an unprecedented and uncontrollable situation, apart from the fact that we should all try to get vaccinated as soon as possible. We are a largely populated country so it might take some time but do register yourselves and in the meantime, follow all guidelines and stay safe,”.
