After voicing her concern over the lack of healthcare facilities in India, Priyanka Chopra has now shared a video message on her Instagram for her followers to come forward and donate a small amount that can help India fight against Covid-19. In the message, Priyanka emphasised that “India, her home, is bleeding” and the world needs to step up and help. She also revealed that she along with her husband Nick Jonas have contributed their bit and are hoping that people can donate in huge numbers as well.
Priyanka captioned her video as, “India, my home, is suffering the world’s worst Covid crisis, and we all need to help! People are dying in record numbers. There is illness everywhere, and it’s only continuing to spread and kill at great speed and scale.”
She further wrote, “I have set up a fundraiser with GiveIndia. Whatever you can spare truly makes a difference. Nearly 63 million people follow me on here, if even 1,00,000 of you donate $10, that’s $1 million, and that’s huge.” She revealed that the donations made will go directly “to healthcare physical infrastructure (including Covid care centres, isolation centres, and oxygen generation plants), medical equipment, and vaccine support and mobilisation.”
