From coming to the rescue of a financially struggling acid attack survivor to starting the initiative 'Bharat Ke Veer' along with the Government of India, Akshay Kumar is a hero in real life too, who has never backed down from going that extra mile for the society, and the bravehearts and their families.
Now, Akshay Kumar has donated Rs. 15 lakh to Sundari Devi, wife of Jeet Ram Gurjar. Gurjar was one of the CRPF jawans martyred in the Pulwama terror attack on 14th February. CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) DIG Jagdish Narayan Meena revealed the news of his donation.
Jeet Ram Gurjar hailed from a village in Bharatpur and was the sole earning member in his family. His younger brother, Vikram Singh, thanked Kumar for his gesture at a time when they needed it the most, as they are financially very weak. He further mentioned that his parents along with Gurjar's wife and two daughters were also dependent on him.
Reportedly, the amount was transferred under 'Bharat Ke Veer'. In this initiative, one can help the families financially, by donating either using the app or the website bharatkeveer.gov.in.
Earlier, it was reported that Akshay has vowed to donate Rs. 5 crore to the families of Pulwama martyrs, via 'Bharat Ke Veer'. He urged his fans to also step forward and help, and wrote on social media that "Pulwama is something we cannot forget and will not forget."
