In a pledge towards India’s ongoing fight against Covid-19, Shah Rukh Khan and wife Gauri Khan have offered their personal offices to help expand quarantine facilities for the infected. The four-storey building, located in the Khar West suburb of Mumbai, has been equipped with essentials aimed towards women, children and the elderly.
The municipal corporation of Greater Mumbai took to social media to thank the couple for their thoughtful and timely gesture.
This is not the first time the 54-year old Bollywood star contributed to initiatives against the pandemic. Earlier this month, Khan pledged donations to the state governments of Maharashtra, Delhi and West Bengal. He also announced initiatives on several other fronts, including the contribution of 50,000 Personal Protective Equipment kits to frontline workers, daily food provisions for 5,500 families in Mumbai, lakh meal kits for 10,000 people and essentials for 2,500 daily-wage workers.
“At a time when the human race is facing an immense crisis, there can only be one true response. This is a moment for all of us to come together in a collective effort to make each other kinder, stronger and braver to face the days ahead, ” the actor posted on Twitter.
