Priyanka Chopra Covid-19 relief: Actor Priyanka Chopra took to her social media platforms on Wednesday night and urged everyone to donate towards COVID-19 relief in India. She announced that she has set up a fundraiser to help the country in time of need during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sharing a video on Instagram, Chopra said, “Why do we need to care? Why is it so urgent right now? I am sitting in London and hearing from my friends and family in India about how hospitals are at capacity, there are no rooms in ICUs, ambulances are too busy, oxygen supply is less, crematoriums having mass cremations because the volume of death is so much.”

The White Tiger actor called India her “home” and highlighted that her country is currently “bleeding”. She asked people to donate, whichever, way they can to help all those who are suffering from the coronavirus in India. The actor said she and her husband, singer Nick Jonas, have set up the fundraiser in collaboration with an online donation platform. Chopra, in her video, talked about India’s collapsed health care system and a critical shortage of oxygen supplies in hospitals. She urged that the global community needs to contribute and now.

The global icon also added that unless everyone is safe, no one is really safe. “And I understand a lot of people must be angry thinking about why we are in this place in the first place? Why is this happening? Well, we’ll address that. We’ll address that after we stop the urgency,” she added.

“Whatever you can spare, truly makes a difference. Your donation will go directly to healthcare physical infrastructure (including Covid care centers, Isolation centers, and oxygen generation plants), medical equipment, and vaccine support and mobilization. Please donate. Nick and I already have and will continue to contribute,” she wrote in the caption.
