A couple of days back Hrithik Roshan provided protection to those who have been selflessly working to protect us by arranging for N95 masks and FFP3 masks for the BMC workers and caretakers. Now he has announced he is now helping facilitate 1.2 lakh nutritious cooked meals for those who cannot help themselves with it.
The War actor has empowered the NGO, Akshaya Patra, who is working terrifically on the ground to ensure that old-age homes, daily wage laborers and low-income groups across India get nutritious cooked meals in these tough times. Food is a fundamental need for people to live, and hence an essential area where support is required, particularly during these times.
Akshaya Patra, the NGO, took to their Twitter and posted tweets on receiving immediate support from Hrithik Roshan. They tweeted, “We are happy to share, our Foundation is now empowered by Superstar @iHrithik. Together, we will facilitate 1.2 lakh nutritious cooked meals to old age homes, daily wage labourers & low-income groups across India, until normalcy in work routine.”
“We salute the immediate help from Superstar Hrithik Roshan in providing relief and supporting the health & the well-being of ALL INDIANS in need of care. We deeply thank you for your gesture. @iHrithik.”
The actor took to his twitter handle in response and reacted in a very emotional and warm manner. He wrote, “I wish you the power to ensure that NO ONE in our country sleeps hungry. You all are the real superheroes on the ground. #IndiaFightsCorona #CovidRelief.”
The NGO Akshaya Patra has supported the efforts of the government by providing food aid to vulnerable communities, such as migrant workers and homeless people. Through its kitchen network, the Foundation works closely with the Government of India, State Governments and other civil administrations in two ways-delivery of cooked meals via their centralized kitchens and via Distribution of Ration Kits.
