The pain that the Pulwama terror attack brought on for the entire nation less than two weeks ago on 14th February, left a gaping wound in our hearts, and more so in the lives of all the families who lost a son, husband or brother.
The families of the martyred soldiers have just started to pick up the pieces of the life that they once knew, and people from across the country are helping them to make their lives a little easier and better in any way they can.

From sports stars to Bollywood film actors and other prominent Indian personalities, everybody has stepped in to help the martyrs' families, not only in spirit but financially too.
From Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan to Shikhar Dhawan and Mohammed Shami, many others have come forward to provide financial help to the martyred soldiers' families.
The most recent name to get added to that list is that of the melody queen of India- Lata Mangeshkar. The veteran singer took to Twitter post the Pulwama attack to express her grief:

She recently announced that she will be donating Rupees 1 crore for the welfare of the Indian soldiers. The amount shall be delivered to the Indian Army on 24th April on the occasion of Master Dinanath Mangeshkar's death anniversary.
That is not all, even the Dinanath Mangeshkar Pratisthan shall be donating 5 lakh rupees to the Indian Army for the welfare of the soldiers who selflessly serve our nation. Speaking to the Maharashtra Times regarding the same, the singer shared that, "many people in the industry always help soldiers who sacrifice their lives for the nation. Even now, people from the industry are helping out. We have also announced something from our end."
The entire nation is aware of the love and respect Lata Mangeshkar holds for our armed forces. Once, on the occasion of her birthday, she had urged her fans and well-wishers to refrain from spending money on her gifts, and spend that money on our jawans instead.
