According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, actor Ajay Devgn has donated oxygen cylinders and ventilators to the new hospital in Dharavi, Mumbai. Dharavi, one of the biggest slums in Asia, has become the largest coronavirus hotspot in Maharashtra. Due to this, the Maharashtra Government has set up a special 200-bed hospital with oxygen facility at Dharavi. The hospital has been set up in just 15 days. Ajay Devgn has paid for oxygen cylinders and ventilators to be used at this health centre. He made the contribution through his Ajay Devgn Films Foundation. Kiran Dighavkar, assistant municipal commissioner of G-North, told Mumbai Mirror, “We told him we needed oxygen cylinders for all 200 beds and two portable ventilators. He readily agreed to pay for them.” BMC official also said that the actor had earlier provided ration kits for 700 families in Dharavi.
Before this, Ajay Devgn had requested people to donate for the needy in Dharavi. In a tweet on May 27, he wrote, “Dharavi is at the epicentre of the Covid 19 outbreak. Many citizens supported by MCGM are working tirelessly on ground through NGOs to provide the needy with ration and hygiene kits. We at ADFF are helping 700 families. I urge you to also donate.” Ajay Devgn has been lending a helping hand since the beginning of this pandemic. He is one of the many Bollywood celebrities who is actively trying to help the people suffering from COVID-19 and has made many contributions from his side.
