Mumbai: Priyanka Chopra has urged the global community to donate funds to help India, which she said is bleeding due to a brutal second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
Expressing her concern over the crumbling health infrastructure in India, Priyanka, in a video posted on Twitter on Thursday said the global community needed to care “because unless everyone is safe, no one is safe”.
“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. India is my home and India is bleeding,” she said.
Priyanka urged people to come forward to help India with their resources.
“…I”ll tell you why we need to care – because unless everyone is safe, no one is safe. So, please use your resources and focus your energy on helping stop this pandemic. Please donate.”
She also said she understands the anger of people and that too will be addressed but the urgency, currently is to donate and support India’s healthcare system.
