Sonu Sood Foundation provides blankets to protect from bitter cold
Bollywood heartthrob Sonu Sood is not just a celebrity, he is a man with a heart of gold whose purpose in life is to serve humanity. We are proud to partner with Sood charity Foundation to provide succour to thousands of people, tribals and homeless and hungry, who need protection from the bitter cold.
Trucks full of blankets have been dispatched to remote mountain villages in Uttarakhand, in Tehri Garhwal and Chamoli districts, and also to Musahar tribals of Uttar Pradesh living in abject poverty and deprivation. Every Infant Matters is ever so grateful to Sonu Sood for his philanthropic eandeavours that are fulfilling an urgent need.
On a practical note, these are warm and cozy blankets. They are of such a big size that a family of 4 can huddle inside and keep warm. When we visited the tribals, we were shocked to find them wearing flimsy cotton rags. These were barely enough to cover their bodies, forget about giving them warmth. Dr Radhika Batra, Founder and president of Every Infant Matters , conveys her deepest gratitude to Sonu Sood, a human being par excellence.
