Many celebrities and influencers have been using their social media presence to amplify the voices of those in need of resources. Amid this, Bollywood couple Akshay Kumar And Twinkle Khanna have donated 100 oxygen concentrators to an organisation.
Twinkle took to her social media account on Tuesday and said that she along with her husband actor Akshay Kumar have managed to procure oxygen concentrators for COVID-19 patients amid the ongoing crisis. She also urged others to contribute in whatever way they can to help fight the second wave of the COVID-19 in her caption.
