Earlier, Sonu Sood had reserving chartered flight for sending migrant employees again to their hometowns. “As another charter flight takes flight today, our efforts to help migrant workers stranded in various parts of the country have only grown stronger. Most of them have never had the opportunity to experience air travel, and the smiles on their faces bring me a lot of joy as they take this AirAsia India flight to reach home to their families and friends,” the actor had stated.
Opening up on Sonu’s philanthropy, Anup Manjeshwar, head of gross sales and distribution, AirAsia India had stated, “With ‘UmeedKiUdaan’ (the name of the operation given for charter flights for migrants), our efforts are aimed at uniting stranded migrant workers with their families, as the nation battles the pandemic. The plight of migrant workers during this crisis has been heartbreaking, but Sood has been a pillar of strength in these testing times and has come forward to support airlifting stranded migrants from Mumbai to Dehradun with the airline’s charter flights.”
Sustain the superb work, Sonu Sood. You actually have confirmed to be a beacon for the needy throughout these excruciating occasions.
