After Sachin Tendulkar, actor Varun Dhawan has contributed to Mission Oxygen India to help procure and donate oxygen concentrators to hospitals.

Varun revealed that the initiative, which was started by entrepreneurs in Delhi-NCR, has raised Rs. 21 crore for the procurement of 3900 OCs in a week.

“The first shipment of concentrators have arrived into the country and have already been allocated across 14 hospitals,” Varun shared on Instagram with pictures.

In a prior post, Varun reflected on what we should remember once the crisis abates.

“If we all survive this, as I hope we shall, remember that when it came down to it, we didn't fight for land or weapons or house or jewellery. We didn't fight for concert tickets or fancy designations or religions or politics. We didn't fight for shares in a company or a seat at the table. We didn't fight for business class tickets or the keys to a house by the beach. When all this is over, remember, that we fought for air,” he wrote.
