Jacqueline Fernandez volunteers to serve the meal to the needy
Feeding the hungry is a noble act, and many social and private organisations across India are working to ensure that people do not go hungry as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. Jacqueline Fernandez has also stepped forward to support the movement by serving food to the needy.
During this ongoing pandemic, everyone is stepping forth to support one another. The world around us is in complete disarray, but there is always hope. Everyone, from common people to celebrities, is doing their best to help people. Many people have donated oxygen tanks, while others have arranged temporary health centres. And, amid all this, actress Jacqueline Fernandez has also come up to help this movement by distributing meals to the needy in Mumbai. She also shared photos on her social media accounts, urging others to do the same for those in need.
On Thursday, Jacqueline Fernandez joined hands with Roti Bank, a non-profit organisation run by former Mumbai Police Commissioner D Sivanandan, to make an attempt to bridge the gap between poverty and surplus food and feeding daily wage staff. She said that she was "truly humbled and inspired" by the work they do.
On her official Instagram account, she posted pictures of herself serving rice, roti, dal, and a vegetable to the poor. She also shared pictures working in the organization's kitchen. She posted: “Mother Teresa once said, "Peace begins when the hungry are fed." I was truly humbled and inspired to visit Mumbai @rotibankfdn today, which is run by former Mumbai police commissioner Mr D Sivanandan. Roti Bank has prepared and distributed meals to millions of hungry people to date, even during the pandemic. They are the perfect example of what #kindnessbrigade aspires to do and I am honoured to be of help to them during these times.”
In another tweet, she stated that the people behind the non-profit were a "perfect example of what #kindnessbrigade aspires to do," and that she was honoured to assist them.
