Well, come commendation or flak, Sonu Sood keeps on turning out tirelessly for the Covid-19 affected. Sonu’s anxious consideration has now moved to those kids whose guardians have succumbed to the pandemic. The actor donor Sonu Sood, who has been arranging oxygen, clinic beds and meds for individuals as the nation fights the second wave of Covid, says each call for help is an acknowledgement of the system’s inability to protect its residents.
In a special conversation, Sonu says, “I am aware of the growing situation. It is serious. I am in touch with those families, those children who have lost their parents. I had also made a request to the state governments to make the education of Covid orphans free and also to provide some kind of regular pension for those families which have lost their earning members. I am glad it’s happening.”
Sonu Sood is excited to notice that the State governments have responded rapidly to the crisis. “11-12 states have already announced free education for kids, and some pension. But I think much more needs to be done in this matter. Efforts to help Covid orphans need to be more consolidated. We need to find a more permanent financial solution to the crisis. Compensation and pension should go to not only to children in government schools but also in private schools. Orphaned children are equally vulnerable in every situation. Why look at only children in government schools?”
However, Sonu Sood is working on resolving this government-versus-private condition. “A strict law should make it mandatory to give equal attention and compensation to children in all schools. We are trying to gather data on all the kids who are thus affected, and we are trying to do our best for them.”
In addition to this, Sonu Sood feels more assistance is required on the civilian-individual level. “Every family who can afford it should consider adopting one such Covid orphan.”
