While the Coronavirus pandemic continues to grip the nation, multiple public figures are coming forward to give their share and contribute in ways they can.
Joining that list is actor Sonam Kapoor. She posted an Instagram story saying that she is dedicating all the revenue earned from her e-shop Bhaane to feed the animals during the lockdown. For the same, a post was also made on her feed with a caption that read, “For years, Bhaane HQ has shared space with stray animals that are around our office space. Due to the lockdown, many of these urban animals like dogs, cats and cows, who were depending on local street businesses and passers by are now starving of hunger. Team @bhaane has pledged to donate 100% of the revenue from our e-shop to providing food for our street companions. Join us at #bhaaneforlife”
She also shared another post about supporting starving power loom workers in Bhiwandi. She backed it by saying, “6 lakh power loom workers in Bhiwandi have been left with no income and no food during the COVID19 lockdown. The situation is so desperate that it resembles a famine. *Powerloom Sangharsh Samiti* and *Movement for Peace and Justice are coming together* with *Youth Feed India* and *Helping Hands Charitable Trust* to raise funds and provide 5000 families of powerloom workers with emergency food kits. *Only Rs. 600 can feed a family for an entire week.”
Talking about their support in the Bollywood industry, Sonam shared a link in her caption so that many can raise a fund for them as she wrote, “These power loom workers are the backbone of the garment industry, of the textile industry, of Bollywood. *Support Bhiwandi's powerloom workers at ketto.org/fundraiser/support-bhiwandi-powerloom-workers TODAY”
