In this time of great uncertainty for the world, many well-known names have been donating their money, space and time to help those in most need. Rakul Preet Singh’s family have been supplying meals to slum families in Gurgaon.
“My dad figured this entire slum where people are completely right now out of their basics. We are facilitating two meals a day for all those people and we have decided to do it till the time the lockdown is in place. If the lockdown gets pushed further, I will keep doing that. For now, I have committed till the month of April and then we will see depending on the situation. The food would be cooked at a place in my society and will be sent out to those people,” said the actress, talking to Filmfare.
She also went on to explain that she sees it as her duty to help those less fortunate, “It is very important to understand that many of us are privileged. We have a house, help, food, ability to stack up in case of emergency but this is when you give it to society. For me, nothing can give me more happiness than the smiles on these people’s faces when they will eat their meal. And that will make me extremely happy. So that’s my way of expressing my gratitude for everything I have and it is a very small effort. Whoever can make a difference should, because I truly believe in giving back to society”.
