Kanchana Ngan |Dec 12, 2018

After helping 1398 UP farmers pay off their loans last month, Amitabh Bachchan continued to donate Rs 50 Lakh for the welfare of senior citizens.

Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is admired by people from all walks of life as he has significant influence and dominance on the history of Indian as well as global cinema. Despite his great fame and success, he is one of the few celebrities who use that star power to serve the people. He wishes to make a difference and evoke a change with social campaigns such as Polio or Swachch Bharat Abhiyan. After his attempt to pay off loans of 1398 UP farmers by giving out over Rs 4.05 crore in November, the motto was once again proved and affirmed.

This month, Amitabh Bachchan had a chance to meet the founder of the NGO, Ravi Kalra, on his show named Kaun Banega Crorepati. Ravi Kalra joined the show in an effort to win money for his charitable cause. With that purpose, he shared sorrowful stories of the elderly being abandoned by their own children and suffering from a difficult life. The narratives moved Amitabh Bachchan so much that he promised to donate, and he really did.

Giving reasons for his donation, Amitabh Bachchan claimed that it was social workers who made changes to the world, not smiling celebrity faces. Consequently, they should be praised more and deserved much better things. “As committed during the programme I am attaching herewith my contribution towards the noble cause that you undertake for the deprived. May you continue to bring succor and happiness in the lives of the abandoned. Shall be grateful for your acknowledgment", Amitabh Bachchan said in his letter when contributing Rs 50 lakhs to The Earth Saviours Foundation, a Gurgaon-based NGO situated in Bandhwari Village.

Ravi Kalra, the founder of the NGO, stated that the money donated by Amitabh Bachchan would be used for the sake of 450 senior citizens living in the NGO in terms of treatment, medicine, and food. A village hospital is also expected to be built thanks to Amitabh Bachchan's kindness and generosity.
