Coronavirus pandemic: Sonu Sood says his heart bleeds seeing migrant workers struggling to reach their home

Mumbai: The coronavirus lockdown has affected the lives of migrant workers, who are struggling to reach their homes. Journalist Barkha Dutt shared a clip on her Twitter account, where she is talking to a migrant worker, who has been turned down away from the border for three consecutive days in attempt to get her children and her home. Sonu Sood quoted replied to that tweet and wrote, “My heart bleeds seeing them. All I can say is we failed as humans Broken heart just imagine ourselves in that situation.. with little children whom we wanna give all the comforts in the world. Just pray that every single migrant may reach their respective home.”

In the global crisis of coronavirus, Sonu Sood is contributing his bit to help the people in tackling this situation. The actor recently offered his Mumbai hotel as a lodging facility for health workers and is providing meals to the needy families.

Talking about his contribution in this noble initiative, Sonu Sood said, “It takes us 3-4 hours to co-ordinate everything in the morning. We are sending ration kits, food to many people in different parts of Mumbai. The food comes in, we pack it, people come in to take it. Sometimes when the food does not reach people, we line up people for it and start preparing for the next day. So, those people who are getting bored in the quarantine, you can definitely take out some time for others. I tell my friends as well that you should cook an extra meal for a person or a family in your kitchen. If this happens, I don’t think anyone will have to sleep on an empty stomach.”
