India is trying its best to grasp the crippling Covid-19 situation in the country. While the onset of the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic has mired troubles, many Bollywood actors have come ahead to help the people suffering by the current Covid-19 crisis.
Apart from extending financial help and providing the essentials, celebrities are also trying to raise awareness and help those in need in dealing with the crisis. Actress Jacqueline Fernandez is also doing her part as she launched a foundation, ‘You Only Live Once’, which now has ties with several NGOs who are motivated to help people during the pandemic.
The actress recently visited an NGO, Roti Bank, in Mumbai and helped prepare and distribute meals to people.
Taking to her Instagram handle, the Kick actress visited the ‘Roti Bank’ where she can be seen preparing the food in the kitchen and handing out meals to those in need.
Sharing the pictures, Jacqueline Fernandez’s caption read: “Mother Teresa once said, ‘Peace begins when the hungry are fed.’ I was truly humbled and inspired to visit Mumbai @rotibankfdn today, which is run by former Mumbai police commissioner Mr. D Sivanandan. Roti Bank has prepared and distributed meals to millions of hungry people till date, even during the pandemic. They are the perfect example of what #kindnessbrigade aspires to do and I am honored to be of help to them during these times.”
The Race 3 actress has set up the You Only Live Once foundation to create and share stories of kindness in everyday life. She has tied up with several NGOs that cater to the different needs in our society to begin with.
Recently, Jacqueline’s co-star and friend, Salman Khan - often known for his humanitarian initiatives - is once again helping the community and underprivileged people in the nation. He has extended his efforts to help the needy and underprivileged people in Mumbai with food distribution through his food trucks 'Being Haangryy'.
