Global star Priyanka Chopra Jonas has stepped forward to assist India during the COVID 19 crisis. The actress and her husband, actor-singer Nick Jonas, have started a fundraising campaign with GiveIndia to aid to help India in times of the pandemic.
In a video posted on Instagram, 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.”
“We, as a global community, need to care. And I'll tell you why we need to care – because unless everyone is safe, no one is safe. So, please use your resources and focus your energy on helping stop this pandemic. Please donate. I understand a lot of people must be angry and thinking about, 'Why are we in this place in the first place? Why is this happening?' We will address that but after we stop the urgency. Please donate and please use your resources as much as you can. India needs you,” she added.
