Shawn Mendes Tries To Help India Amid COVID-19 Outbreak


In India, the COVID-19 situation is worsening by the minute. In fact, the worst in the world at the moment. The country is in urgent need of medical supplies, medicines, and vaccines. Many across the country are unable to find hospital beds, oxygen supplies, and medicines.

On Friday, Singer Shawn Mendes took to his social media accounts. He urged his fan and followers to help India fight the deadly second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. He asked his fans to donated whatever they possibly can to help the country.

“If you’ve ever been touched by India’s culture or India’s people, just donate or share, or anything you can do to help,” he said.

Celebrities Unite To Help India

In addition to that, Ellen DeGeneres came forward to help India through her twitter account as she tweeted:

“India needs our help. My friend @JayShettyIW and I are trying to raise $1M for @GiveIndia, and @IndiasporaForum will match it! This means every dollar is doubled, so we can try our best to make a difference. If you can help, I hope you will.”

‘To All The Boy I’ve Loved Before’ actor Lana Condor, actor Jada Pinkett Smith, Game of Thrones star Richard Madden, YouTube star Lilly Singh, and The Big Bang Theory actor Kunal Nayyar came forward to help India.

In fact, Richard Madden shared a link to his Citadel co-star Priyanka’s fundraiser.

Richard wrote, “Please help and support whatever you can. Thank you Priyanka Chopra for setting this up.”

Kunal shared a picture of himself in a face shield on his Instagram account.

He wrote, “Back in NYC for work. Missing home, been in constant contact with mom, dad, family, cousins, friends, in Delhi and all over India. My heart is with you. Dilli meri jaan.”

YouTube fame Lilly Singh shared a picture of herself with ‘Donate for India’ written on her chest on her social media accounts.

“Now that I have your attention, direct your gaze to the donate button,” Lilly wrote.

Jada Pinkett Smith also amplified both Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Jay Shetty’s fundraiser tweets.

“Continuing to share resources to support the Covid crisis in India. Everything helps. Donations go directly to healthcare physical infrastructure, medical equipment, and vaccine support and mobilization. @GiveIndia,” Mindy wrote.

Priyanka and Nick Jonas Raise Funds for India

Last week, Priyanka and Nick asked for donations. The couple raised over half a million dollars for the cause within two days.

“Why do we need to care? Why is it so urgent right now? I am sitting in London and hearing from my friends and family in India about how hospitals are at capacity, there are no rooms in ICUs, ambulances are too busy, oxygen supply is less, crematoriums having mass cremations because the volume of death is so much. India is my home and India is bleeding,” Priyanka said when appealing for donations.
