Earlier Sonu and his team had also helped a hospital in Bengaluru that had run out of oxygen cylinders and as a result the lives of at least 20 COVID-19 patients were at stake. After a police officer asked the actor and his team for help, they worked the entire night to provide oxygen cylinders to the hospital. According to a news report in ANI, Hashmath Raza from Sonu Sood Charity Foundation in Karnataka had received an SOS call from a police official about the requirement of oxygen cylinders at ARAK hospital in the city. The said hospital had already lost two patients due to a shortage of oxygen and was at the risk of losing around 20-22 COVID-19 patients.
Sonu Sood had also revealed to ANI stating, "This was sheer teamwork and the will to help our fellow countrymen. As soon as we got the call from Inspector Satyanarayan, we verified it and got to act within minutes. The team spent the entire night not thinking about anything else but just helping the hospital get oxygen cylinders. Had there been any delay, many families would have lost their close ones."
Earlier Sonu had also shared a video wherein he appealed to the government and all the organizations to make a rule for free education of the children who lost their parents to COVID-19. He had mentioned that this rule should be applicable to all such children irrespective of them being in a private or a government school. Actor Priyanka Chopra had also supported Sonu's appeal.
