Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap are a socially conscious couple who are extremely vocal about issues and are always looking to contribute and support people in need. The couple have for years supported a non-profit organisation in Delhi, Gulmeher – a women’s collective of waste-pickers turned artisans. Such lower income groups have been really hit hard economically with the all India lockdown during COVID-19 crisis and Ayushmann and Tahira have come forward to support them financially!
Ayushmann, who has already donated to PM-CARES Fund, says, “Coronavirus has impacted people from every strata of life. But it has hit the lower income groups the hardest and it is our duty as citizens of this nation to come forward and support the people in dire need. Tahira and I have been associated with Gulmeher, a non-profit organization, for years and we are doing every bit possible to support these women who are absolutely distraught now.” Gulmeher works with about 200 women ragpickers and this contribution will help them look after themselves and their families.
