Diyanshu Upadhyay, secretary of the NGO revealed that these donations are not only being used to feed the virus-infected patients, but also the people working at Harishchandra and Manikarnika shamshan ghats in Varanasi.
The secretary said, “Eight of us from the Hope team have been distributing 1000 thalis every day in the city. Each thali has rice, dal, roti, sabzi, salad and biscuits. If we distribute lunch to the hospitals during the day, at night, we focus on the cremation grounds. Farhan sir has always stood by us in our times of need, and we are grateful for his contribution this time.”
Upadhyay further revealed that he reached out to Farhan through social media. The actor gave a prompt response and was ready to help.
A few days back, Farhan helped the National level boxer and NIS qualified coach who was struggling to make ends meet, return to coaching young boxing aspirants.
