Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam on Wednesday donated blood and urged his fans to donate as well amid the second wave of COVID-19.

He inaugurated the blood donation camp organised by Ameet Satam’s Adarsh Foundation at Bharatmata Hall, Vidyanidhi campus in Juhu.

The 47-year-old singer posted a video on Instagram in which he talked about the importance of donating blood amid these testing times.

In the video, Nigam revealed that he had tested positive for coronavirus earlier and that he has not taken the vaccine yet.

Alongside the video, he wrote, “Non Vaccinated people, come and donate Blood, there’s gonna be acute shortage in India soon.”

The singer became the first blood donor of the two-day camp set up in Juhu.

Nigam has also helped procure 2021 portable oxygen canisters which can provide on-demand oxygen supply to critical patients when hospital beds or oxygen concentrators are not available. These oxygen canisters will be installed in ambulances across the city.

A 19-year-old golfer, Krishiv KL Tekchandani, has also joined the singer’s efforts by uniting the youth to ensure the portable oxygen canisters reach the struggling COVID-19 patients across the city.

“The youth of the nation should understand India’s plight and step up to do what’s right!” added Krishiv when asked about his recent donation endeavours.
