Indian cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar has donated an undisclosed amount to people who are underprivileged and are adversely affected by the pandemic. Sachin has provided financial help to around 4000 underprivileged people, including children from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) schools, in the midst of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The 46-year old former India cricketer has made donations to the Hi5 Foundation, a non-profit organisation based in Mumbai. Tendulkar tweeted, “Best wishes to team Hi5 for your efforts in supporting families of daily wage earners.”
The organization in turn thanked Sachin for his noble gesture via tweet. The organization tweeted, “Thanks, @sachin_rt for proving once again that #sports encourages compassion! Your generous donation towards our #COVID19 fund enables us to financially aid 4000 underprivileged people, including children from @mybmc schools. Our budding sportsmen thank you, Little Master.”

The batting legend has earlier donated a sum of Rs 25 lakh to Prime Minister’s Relief Fund and Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for the nation’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
Not only that but Tendulkar also pledged to bear the cost of feeding 5000 people for a month in a couple of areas in Mumbai.
Meanwhile, Sachin is spending time at home with his family. Recently he took to Instagram to inform his fans what he has been doing at home amid the nationwide lockdown. He shared a picture of himself with his daughter holding a plate of beetroot kebabs which his daughter made.
He also mentioned that he finished off the kebabs in about only 60 seconds. He also shared pictures of himself cutting his own hair as the saloons are shut because of the lockdown.
Sachin has been very active on social media spreading awareness about the COVID-19 pandemic amongst his fans and followers.
