Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas had earlier started a fundraising event with Give India to help the country fight the pandemic. Now they have gone one step ahead to support another cause which is fighting hunger and malnutrition.
‘We are overwhelmed by the support that has come in & as we continue to raise more to support India’s healthcare infrastructure, we’d also like to extend support to another critical need that has emerged in our battle against Covid, fighting Hunger & malnutrition across India’ said the post.
Earlier Priyanka Chopra had shared a post which stated that a study from a reputed University said that one year of pandemic had pushed 230 million Indians into poverty.
She stated that GiveIndia is helping to serve cooked meals and dry rations to municipal wards, municipal staff, orphanages, elderly in need, patients, daily wagers, migrant workers and others in need.
