Ever since the pandemic hit us in 2020, Sonu Sood has done his best to help people across the nation. Right from arranging transport facilities for migrant workers to helping citizens with medicines and beds, the actor has been doing his bit throughout to help fight the virus.
Now, Sood is bringing oxygen plants from France and other nations for installing them at various places in India. The actor is planning to install at least four of the oxygen plants in the worst-hit Covid-19 states in India, including Delhi and Maharashtra.
In a statement, Sonu Said, “We have seen a lot of people suffering because of the unavailability of oxygen cylinders. We have got it now, and are already giving it to people. However, these oxygen plants will not only supply to entire hospitals but will also get these oxygen cylinders filled up, which will solve a major problem of the people suffering from Covid-19.” As per the official release, the first plant has been ordered and it will be delivered in 10-12 days from France. He continues, “Time is the biggest challenge for us at the moment and we are working our best to make sure everything comes in time and we don’t lose more lives”.
Earlier, the actor and his team of volunteers in Bengaluru provided more than 16 oxygen cylinders to a hospital in the city, saving 20-22 Covid-19 patients’ lives. He recently managed to arrange over 100 requests for Remdesivir injections and oxygen and over 500 pleas for beds, but disappointed as he couldn’t make it available for all of them.
