Vivek Oberoi starts fundraiser to provide food for poor kids battling cancer
Sharing a video on Instagram, he urged all to donate towards the initiative which aims to provide food to 3000 cancer patients and their families for the next three months.
Bollywood actor Vivek Anand Oberoi recently started a fundraiser to provide food to over 3000 cancer patients and their families for the next three months.
Through the initiative, Vivek is on a mission to help the Cancer Patient's Aid Association (CPAA) and its food bank to provide food to over 3000 cancer patients.
The actor took to Instagram on Saturday and shared a video urging people from all walks of life to come forward and contribute as much as possible for his fundraiser. Vivek said that a contribution of ₹1000 could help CPAA's food bank provide an entire month's food to a child fighting cancer and their family.
Parents of cancer-stricken kids who spoke to Vivek told him that they have been starving for over three days just so they can provide maximum nutrition and immunity possible for their kid fighting cancer.
The human body's immunity is low after chemotherapy sessions, a child needs proper nutrition to recover from it. Vivek's mission is to ensure that these kids never go hungry and their parents don't have to starve just to provide their kids the necessary nutrition.
Vivek concluded the video by sharing a message. He said, "These people are already fighting cancer, let's ensure that they don't have to fight hunger."
Vivek has earlier sponsored hundreds of free heart surgeries for poor children. He has saved more than 2.5 lakh underprivileged kids from cancer and over 2200 little girls from child prostitution, of whom over 50 are now studying abroad on scholarships. He has donated the money earned from his first movie Company towards the heart surgery of an underprivileged young girl.
Vivek is currently working on his production ventures, Rosie: Saffron Chapter and Iti: Can You Solve your Own Murder. Rosie will mark the debut of Palak Tiwari, daughter of TV star Shweta Tiwari.
