Priyanka Chopra sets up a fundraiser for COvid-19 relief

Priyanka Chopra has been living in the US and London for the past few years. Though she has been predominantly working in Hollywood, she has turned her attention towards India and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. She recently appealed to the US to help India in the Covid-19 battle. Priyanka has now set up a fundraiser and urged everyone to help people. Since there is a severe shortage of oxygen supplies and life-saving medicines, she set up this fundraiser for people to donate money so they can buy oxygen supplies.

In a video, Priyanka said, "Why do we need to care? Why is it so urgent right now? I am sitting in London and hearing from my friends and family in India about how hospitals are at capacity, there are no rooms in ICUs, ambulances are too busy, oxygen supply is less, crematoriums having mass cremations because the volume of death is so much. India is my home and India is bleeding. Whatever you can spare, truly makes a difference. Nearly 63 million people follow me on here, if even 100,000 of you donate $10, that’s $1 Million, and that’s huge. Your donation will go directly to healthcare physical infrastructure (including Covid care centers, Isolation centers, and oxygen generation plants), medical equipment, and vaccine support and mobilization."
