Rishabh Pant will be donating Oxygen Cylinders, beds and Covid-relief kits.

Indian wicketkeeper-batsman and Delhi Capitals (DC) skipper Rishabh Pant on Saturday announced that he will be making a monetary donation to help support the country fight in these tough times. Pant will be donating money to Hemkunt Foundation for the purchase of oxygen cylinders, beds and Covid-19 relief kit.

The Southpaw took Twitter to announce his kind act and said, β€œThe scale of despair across our country has been immense and something I have been deeply affected by. As someone who has seen personal loss up close, my heart goes out to all the families who have suffered over the past year and I pray for the souls of those who have left us.”

He further said that Cricket has taught him how to make collective efforts for a cause.

β€œOne of the most important aspects I have learned from sport is the power of working together as a team for a common cause.”

He also praised the frontline workers who have been saving lives for all this while since the beginning of the pandemic last year.

I salute our frontline workers, who have been working tirelessly to help India throughout the past year. However, the cause of helping India overcome these unprecedented times needs all our collective efforts,” Pant said.

β€œI am providing a monetary donation to the Hemkunt Foundation that will help the suffering people across the country and provide them oxygen cylinders with beds and necessary Covid relief kits. I am keen on helping rural India where the health infrastructure is not up to the mark.”

β€œI urge everyone to contribute in their own way so that we can help reach the remotest part of the country and spread awareness about COVID relief and vaccination programs being run by the central and state governments.”

Besides his contribution to this cause, several other cricketers have made their donations earlier. The like of Pat Cummins, Brett Lee, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Jaydev Unadkat, Nicholas Pooran and some of the IPL franchise have raised their hands and provided help to the needy.
