Actor Shah Rukh Khan on Friday urged people to donate for stray and abandoned animals that are going hungry due to the nationwide lockdown imposed to contain the coronavirus spread.

“As the world is coping with the outbreak of COVID-19, We must not forget those without a voice. Let’s make sure stray & abandoned animals are treated with care and compassion. Help @amtmindiavia,” he tweeted.

The ‘My Name is Khan’ actor has also come forward to help in the battle against coronavirus by contributing 25,000 personal protective equipment (PPE) kits to the Maharashtra Health Department for the safety of the doctors and health care workers in the state.

Moreover, Khan along with his group of companies have pledged to donate to a number of relief funds, including the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES) fund and the Maharashtra Chief Minister’s Relief Fund to combat the coronavirus.
