Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar, Varun Dhawan and Farhan Akhtar on Saturday extended support through various initiatives to help India combat the second wave of coronavirus pandemic. Expressing his concern over the crumbling healthcare system in the country owing to the rising COVID-19 cases, Dhawan said he will help to procure and donate oxygen concentrators to hospitals.

The 34-year-old actor has partnered with Mission Oxygen India, a fund-raising initiative by Delhi-NCR based entrepreneurs, for importing oxygen concentrator machines and donating them to various hospitals across the country.

Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s production company Excel Entertainment too have come forward and donated money to non-profit organizations Hemkunt Foundation, Doctor For You, Mission Vayu, Rasoi On Wheels, Give India, Hope Welfare Trust, SBS Foundation, and Sathyarth Socio.

“Sharing a list of organisations that @excelmovies has donated to thus far, in the fight against COVID-19. From oxygen to ambulances to food, they are doing some incredible work on the ground,” Akhtar wrote.

Superstar Akshay Kumar said he will be supporting the National Commission for Women (NCW)’s initiative to help pregnant women amid the pandemic.

“The Covid-crisis has taken an unbearable toll over women and children. It’s time they got help. Any pregnant woman needing medical assistance can call on the helpline 9354954224 of NCW India,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories.

Kumar also shared the helpline number for children who need counseling or help.
