Tennis star Sania Mirza has urged everyone to stop posting cooking videos and food pictures as hundreds of thousands of people are starving to death due to hunger as the novel coronavirus crisis deepens.
Sania Mirza took to her official Twitter handle to share her feelings about the unprivileged and poor who are struggling to find food once a day.
“Aren’t we done with posting cooking videos and food pictures yet? Just spare a thought – there are hundreds of thousands of ppl, especially in our side of the world starving to death and struggling to find food once a day if they are lucky,” Mirza wrote.
Earlier, Sania Mirza had raised Rs 1.25 crores to provide food and other basic necessities for the daily wage workers during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has so far claimed more than 16,000 lives across the world.
A 21-day lockdown has been imposed in almost the entire country with an aim to stop the spread of novel coronavirus, which has infected more than 2500 people and claimed 77 lives so far.
Last month, Sania had shared a video on her social networks supporting the Safa organisation and pledged to donate and asked people to make a contribution for the workers during this tough time.
“In this difficult time that the world is going through, we are privileged to be able to sit at home, in comfort and wait for everything to be ok again… there are thousands of people who aren’t that lucky enough and it’s our responsibility to take care of them in whatever capacity we can,” Sania had said.
“Together with Safa and a few other people we hope to help as many families as possible in this difficult time and make a little bit of a difference,” she added.
