Covid 19: Mohanlal donates Rs 50 lakhs to Kerala Cheif Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund
Kerala is one of the worst affected states by the deadly Corona virus. The government machineries are working tirelessly to contain the spread of the virus. To help in the government’s fight against the virus outbreak, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal has contributed a sum of Rs 50 lakhs to the Chief Minister’s disaster relief fund. In a letter addressed to State CM Pinarayi Vijayan, Mohanlal heaped praised on his leadership. It reads,
These are very trying times for all of us. We deeply appreciate the safety measures and guidelines that you have set for us to contain this pandemic. Your hands on leadership in this crisis will go down in the annals of our history. Please accept my humble contribution of Rs 50,00,000 (Rs 50 lakhs only) to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund which may be used for the safety measures/relief steps initiated from your office to contain this pandemic. Please continue with your efforts Sir, our wishes are with you.
Mohanlal is perhaps the first from the Malayalam film industry to provide financial assistance to the government. Earlier, he had donated Rs 10 lakhs to the daily wage workers of the film industry who have been severely hit due to the complete lockdown.
