India has been witnessing an unprecedented spike in the Covid-19 cases for a few days now – straining the healthcare system. The rising demand for medical supplies across the nation has raised concerns and India is struggling to meet with demands for the extremely crucial medical supplies.
Apart from the government, numerous people and Bollywood stars are making efforts to help the people suffering from the wrath of novel coronavirus. Amid the times of crisis, actress Raveena is actively working behind the scenes, arranging for oxygen cylinders and responding to all those reaching out to her amidst this COVID crisis.
Jumping into action to do her bit amid the crippling crisis, the 46-year-old actress has set up a team with her close ones. An ETimes report quoted her reflecting her views over the second wave of Covid-19, Raveena called the current situation an apocalypse and said that it is unbelievable. She asserted, “Rich people are paying for injections and treatments, but imagine the plight of the common man! It is so disheartening.”
She pointed out that volunteers across India are responding to requests daily and trying to arrange oxygen kits to oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators.
Several Bollywood celebrities are up in arms to help the people as they are utilizing their social media handles to amplify the requests made by people.
“One of us tweets and as soon as help is available, we see to it that the person in need gets their requirement. We are all trying to pool our resources, putting people in touch for this SOS situation. I want to encourage people to come out and help at this crucial hour,” Raveena Tandon said.
Amid the rising demand for oxygen cylinders, Raveena Tandon has arranged for a truck full of cylinders that will be delivered straight to those in need.
The recent ETimes report quoted her saying, “Hospitals are charging a bomb so we are arranging for oxygen cylinders that can directly be sent to those who may not afford it. We have been in touch with cops and NGOs to break the chain and operate smoothly. Our first lot that is ready for transport for Delhi includes 300 oxygen cylinders.”
Going that extra mile, Raveena Tandon recently ensured that medical help reached Padma Bhushan, late Pandit Rajan Mishra in Delhi, who passed away due to health complications.
On the other hand, Raveena slammed those indulging in black marketing of oxygen cylinders, and said, “This too will pass and once it does, I hope that these black marketers are caught and brought under check. They are like vultures feeding on us.”
Raveena concluded as she urged everyone to mask-up and get vaccinated. She said that vaccination is the need of the hour and the more people get vaccinated, the better.
