Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan has donated Rs 20 Lakhs to Mission Oxygen.
He took to social media to announce that he will be donating Rs 20 Lakhs as well as his IPL 2021 post-match individual performance money towards the relief.
His statement read-
“We are in unprecedented times right now, and it is the need of the hour that we do everything possible to help each other out.
Over the years, I have received incredible love and support from all of you, for which I am eternally
grateful. It’s now my turn to give back to the people of this country.
I will be making a donation of Rs 20 lakhs, plus money from all post-match individual performance awards that
I receive from the IPL 2021 towards Mission Oxygen to help fund the requirement of oxygen.
I would like to thank all the tireless frontline workers for their incredible service. We are forever in your debt. I
also urge everyone to observe all health protocols – wear a mask, sanitize and maintain social distancing.
Please step out only when necessary.
Together, we will win.”
Shikhar Dhawan is the current leading run-scorer for Delhi Capitals and is having an excellent tournament with the bat so far.
