It is noted that ‘ Master Blaster’ has been associated with various initiatives in order to create awareness for the donation of blood.
Sachin Tendulkar also helped with ‘Mission Oxygen’
Previously, given that India had been dealing with a lack of oxygen concentrators, the former Indian batting talisman had immensely contributed to ‘Misson Oxygen’ to help the country continue its battle against the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
The mission helped raise funds for importing oxygen concentrators and were donated to hospitals across the country that saw shortages.
Tendulkar who had previously tested positive for the deadly virus helped with the Mission Oxygen. He was not alone to fight for the cause as a group of 250 young entrepreneurs came forward to launch the mission.
It is needless to say that the second wave of COVID-19 had laid destruction on the country’s healthcare system. However, with people moving hand in hand, the battle continues.
