Mumbai: Actor Sushmita Sen recently organised a few oxygen cylinders in Mumbai to be transported to a hospital in New Delhi.
Sen made the arrangement after coming across a a viral video about oxygen crisis in a Delhi hospital. Heartbroken by the state of medical infrastructure in the country, the actress took to Twitter to ask her followers to suggest her a way she could send cylinders to Delhi. She had already organised a few cylinders for hospitals in Mumbai, but could not find the right channel to transport them to Delhi.
On Thursday, Sushmita Sen wrote on Twitter, “This is deeply heart breaking. Oxygen crisis is everywhere. I have managed to organise a few oxygen cylinders for this hospital but have no way to transport it to Delhi from Mumbai. Please help me find a way (sic).”
While many fans of Sushmita Sen applauded the actress for her efforts to arrange oxygen cylinders, many questioned her why she is not helping Mumbai hospitals. To this, the Aarya actress wrote, “Because Mumbai still has oxygen cylinders available, that’s how I found it. Delhi needs it, especially these smaller hospitals, so help if you can (sic).”
