Bollywood celebs have been doing their bit to help during this coronavirus pandemic. Everyone has been super active on social media and urging fans to follow rules and be safe at home since a lot of fans follow them and hence will listen to their advice. From Salman distributing food, Sonu Sood sending stranded workers home, Akshay donating PPE kits to SRK making sure everyone is fed who’s struggling, everyone in the Bollywood industry has been trying their best to help out the migrants and the medical staff.
Now Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn has paid for all the oxygen cylinders and portable ventilators for a new 200-bed hospital in Dharavi. The contribution has been made through his production house, Ajay Devgn Films Foundation (ADFF). Not only this, but the officials had said that Devgn had also provided ration kits to 700 families of Dharavi. This hospital which will serve as a COVID-19 centre to treat the patients has been constructed on an unused 4,000-sqm plot belonging to the MMRDA. This plot was actually reserved for Maharashtra Nature Park. Kiran Dighavkar, assistant municipal commissioner of G-North said that as work began Ajay had quietly approached to the civic officials and was ready to offer help. He further said that they had told him they needed oxygen cylinders for all 200 beds and two portable ventilators and the actor readily agreed to pay for them. Dighavkar added that there are toilets and separate cubicles for each patient. They have an institutional quarantine centre at Maharashtra Nature Park across the road. They also have an isolation centre at Rajiv Gandhi Sports Complex nearby. With this hospital, they will now have an end-to-end solution for Dharavi.
