Shah Rukh Funds 25,000 PPE Kits To Medical Teams, Salman Helps Women Ground Workers

Actor Shah Rukh Khan on Monday provided 25,000 PPE kits to the frontline medical staff in Maharashtra, who are fighting to contain the novel coronavirus pandemic in the state.

Rajesh Tope, Minister of Public Health and Family Welfare of Maharashtra, took to Twitter to thank him for his contribution.

Replying to the minister, Shah Rukh said everyone is united in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. “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 and team be safe and healthy,” the actor wrote back.
