Shah Rukh Khan To Help ‘Amphan’ Affected Bengal With Donations, Tree Saplings
Mumbai: After making generous contributions for assisting COVID-19 warriors and victims, B-town’s King, Shah Rukh Khan has now stepped forward to help Cyclone Amphan-ravaged West Bengal.
According to the Kolkata Knight Rider’s official Twitter handle, an undisclosed amount of money has been transferred to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s relief fund set up for the state.
In addition to this, SRK’s team will be planting around 5000 trees in the state, which has lost its green cover because of the cyclone.
The actor, along with his IPL team KKR, has also launched an initiative named ‘KKR Sahayta Vahan’ for distributing ration and other essential commodities to the residents of the badly affected areas i.e. Kolkata, North and South Parganas and Purba Medinipur.
Volunteers of ‘KKR Sahayta Vahan’ will be visiting these places to supply essential items like ration and hygiene products to the needy.
They will wear face masks and use sanitisers while distributing these items and also abide by the social distancing norms as directed by the government.
