Actor Anushka Sharma and cricketer Virat Kohli announced on Thursday that they have pledged their support to three organizations for the relief of the Bihar and Assam floods.
Anushka and Virat took to their social media pages to share the note that read, “While our country is in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, people in Assam and Bihar are also suffering due to the devastating floods that have affected so many lives and livelihood. While we continue to pray for the people in Assam & Bihar, Virat and I have also pledged to help those in need by supporting these three organizations that have been doing credible work in flood relief & welfare. If this resonates with you, please reach out to support these states through these organizations.”
Earlier this week, actor Priyanka Chopra and her husband Nick Jonas also donated to the cause of flood relief and rehabilitation work in Bihar and Assam.
She wrote, “The monsoon in India have caused major devastation in many parts of the country. In the state of Bihar, which is where I was born, continuous heavy rains have caused major flooding. Much like Assam, millions of people have been affected and many have been displaced as their homes were washed away in the deluge. As they grapple with this devastation, they need all the help that we can provide. Nick and I have already donated to a few organizations whose teams are engaged in the active relief and rehabilitation work in the state. Now it’s your turn #BiharFloods.”
