BH CORRESPONDENT, New Delhi: De De Pyaar De actor Rakul Preet Singh has taken on the philanthropic task of providing meals to around 200 families in a slum in Gurgaon, close to her home. The meals are prepared in her apartment complex and delivered to needy families who are facing dire economic condition due to the lockdown.
“My dad figured this entire slum where people are completely right now out of their basics. We are facilitating two meals a day for all those people and we have decided to do it till the time the lockdown is in place. If the lockdown gets pushed further, I will keep doing that. For now, I have committed till the month of April and then we will see depending on the situation. The food would be cooked at a place in my society and will be sent out to those people,” she said in an interview to Times of India.
This in turn inspired another resident to help out the poor. He took to Twitter to post, “@Rakulpreet..The poor people,daily wage works and the beggars are in real crisis..As a part our team @rakulisam143 come forward to help them by giving food 200 packets nd banans and water packets .This all are done by love and inspiration for are idol”.
