India opener Shikhar Dhawan has been in the forefront of the fight against the Covid 19 pandemic.

Recently, he donated ₹20 lakh to an NGO for buying oxygen cylinders and concentrators to help the hospitals.

Additionally, Dhawan had also decided to donate his prize money received in various IPL matches, at the end of the event.

Today, he continued his good work by donating oxygen concentrators to Gurugram Police.

Dhawan expressed his emotions through a tweet – “Grateful to serve my people in this pandemic through this small token of help! Always ready to help my people and society to my best. India shall rise and shine against this pandemic!”

Ajinkya Rahane and Sachin Tendulkar are some of the other cricketers who have made monetary contributions.

Tendulkar contributed Rs 1 crore to ‘Oxygen India’, based out of the National Capital Region (NCR), one of the worst affected in the country.
