Sonu Sood arranges for oxygen cylinder for Suresh Raina's relative after cricketer requests for leads on Twitter
'Reaching in 10 minutes': Sonu Sood responded to Suresh Raina's tweet asking for an oxygen cylinder in Meerut for his aunt, who is suffering from COVID-19.
Ever since the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the country, citizens are coming together to help each other in this hour of crisis. One of the celebrities who has again offered a hand of help to those in need is Sonu Sood. The 47-year-old actor and his team have been responding to SOS messages from people across the country on social media, trying to help as many as they can.
A new name has been added to the list of people who got help from Sood. Indian cricketer Suresh Raina received help from the actor as he arranged an oxygen cylinder for his coronavirus -positive aunt in Meerut.
At around 3 pm on Thursday, 6 May, Raina tweeted that there was an urgent requirement for an oxygen cylinder for his aunt in Meerut. Sharing the vitals of her aunt, which included an alarming oxygen saturation level, the cricketer tagged Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath in his tweet and asked for help.
After Raina tweeted for help, Sood asked him the details to get the cylinder delivered. After almost an hour, Sood tweeted again informing that the oxygen cylinder will be delivered in 10 minutes. Grateful for the support, Raina thanked Sood for the “big help” and gave the actor blessings.
