Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda on Tuesday posted a video announcing that he has teamed up with an NGO to arrange oxygen concentrators.

In the video post, Randeep stands displaying various placards that read slogans like "India needs Oxygen", "Every 4 minutes a person dies by Covid-19", "Crematoriums and burials are running out of space", and "You can save precious lives".
He asked people to donate for the cause, and reiterated his appeal in the caption alongside the video.
"It's your chance to save lives! With India facing the worst of the pandemic, people are dying due to lack of oxygen. Let's come together to help the country fight #COVID and save precious lives. @khalsaaid_india is providing oxygen concentrators and we urge you to come forward and do you bit to help India breathe," Randeep wrote in the caption.
