Earlier last week, Farhan had announced that he is donating 1000 PPE kits and urged people to contribute to increase the number of the safety kits.
Among other actors, Shah Rukh Khan had also provided 25,000 PPE kits to frontline healthcare workers in Maharashtra, fighting the coronavirus pandemic. The actor contributed the same through his NGO, Meer Foundation.
Thanking his contribution, Minister of Public Health and Family Welfare of Maharashtra, Rajesh Tope had tweeted, “Many thanks Mr Shah Rukh Khan for your kind contribution of 25,000 PPE kits. This will go a long way in supporting our fight against COVID19 & protecting our frontline medical care team @iamsrk @MeerFoundation @CMOMaharashtra.”
Thank you sir for all your help to source the kits. We are all together in this endeavour to protect ourselves and humanity. Glad to be of service. May your family & team be safe and healthy. https://t.co/DPAc7ROh7i— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) April 13, 2020
