Yuzvendra Chahal Covid Donation: The entire world as well as the cricketers are coming forward to help India in this massive battle against the second wave of coronavirus. There have been several relief fund created to fight this pandemic situation. Due to the big dearth of oxygen supplies and other medical facilities, it has become really difficult for the government to control this panic situation across the country.
Just a couple of days back, Team India captain Virat Kohli together with his wife Anushka Sharma announced a contribution of INR 2 crores towards a newly introduced initiative by them and all the funds collected will be transferred directly to the ACT Grants that will help in procuring oxygen supplies across the country. The couple mentioned that they are expecting to raise around INR 7 crores through the Ketto fund. Now, Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate Yuzvendra Chahal has also made a contribution of INR 95,000 towards the campaign.
After this covid donation, Chahal has become one of the 10 donors in this relief fund created by Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. Yuzvendra Chahal has currently returned home after the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) got suspended indefinitely due to the covid-19 outbreak within the bio-secure bubble environment.
Yuzvendra Chahal’s India teammate Rishabh Pant has also stepped ahead to support the people of India in these challenging times. The wicket-keeper batsman has announced that he will be supporting Hemkunt Foundation through a monetary donation which will help in purchasing of oxygen cylinders, beds and all the necessary medical facilities required in these unlikely circumstances all across the country.
“I urge everyone to contribute in their own way so that we can help reach the remotest parts of the country and spread awareness about COVID relief and vaccination programs being run by the central and state governments,” said Rishabh Pant in his post on Twitter.
