Yuvraj Singh Sends Medical Equipment To Himachal Pradesh
Although India has got some amount of relief from the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, still some states are reeling under the wrath of the deadly virus.
And some samaritans like former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh have continued with their relief work to help the battered healthcare system of the country.
Yuvraj, who runs the popular non-profit organisation called YouWeCan, sent a fresh batch of medical equipments to a couple of towns in Himachal Pradesh. The YouWeCan Foundation was set up by cancer survivor Yuvraj in 2012.
“Trucks with COVID critical care beds and medical equipment left from Delhi for Theog and Rohru in Himachal Pradesh last evening. Support our exciting journey to change healthcare for India!” Yuvraj tweeted on Friday.
Earlier this month the YouWeCan had also launched the Mission1000Beds initiative on June 1 which aims to set up “1000 COVID-19 Critical Care Beds having 50% BiPAP enabled, 10% Ventilator enabled beds and other essential equipment for the critical care of COVID-19 patients”.
But the biggest battle that Yuvi won was not on the field but off it when he successfully beat lung cancer, right after his Player of the Tournament-winning performance in the 50-World Cup in India 10 years ago, and returned to the field in 2012.
