AGENCIES, Los Angeles: Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who has been actively spreading awareness about the dangers of the pandemic that has wreaked havoc all over the world, has now turned a good Samaritan by pledging to donate 10,000 pairs of shoes to healthcare workers in several states of India, including Haryana, Kerala, Maharashtra and Karnataka.
“Healthcare professionals across the country are our true superheroes, working everyday to ensure our safety and fighting for us on the frontlines. Their courage, commitment, and sacrifices are saving innumerable lives in this global pandemic. While we cannot even imagine what’s it like to be in their shoes, we can at least help them be comfortable in them. Because of the nature of their work, it is critical for them to have easy-to-clean shoes and apparel for themselves. We are so glad to be able to offer this support and hope this helps these caregivers in the fight against this virus,” said the Dostana actor, reports IANS.
She and her husband Nick Jonas have already donated for several relief funds. She added, “So many people around the world need our support more than ever. It was important for Nick and I to donate to organizations that are helping low income and homeless families, helping doctors and first responders, feeding children, and of course supporting the music & entertainment industry. They need your support too, and we would implore you to donate. No amount is too small, even if it’s $1. Together, we can make a difference.”
