Shah Rukh Khan has reached out to help with the destructive cyclone Amphan’s damage. The twitter account of Kolkata Knight Riders, his IPL team, posted how they’ve planned to extend their help to Cyclone Amphan Relief.

Cyclone Amphan has majorily devastated the Indian states of West Bengal and Odisha and India’s neighbour, Bangladesh. The cyclone killed not less than 80 people in India and Bangladesh and shook four million people with its terror.

The team will plant 5000 trees in the capital city Kolkata and will fill up the West Bengal Chief Minister’s fund with an anonymous amount. Not only this, the Bengal team will help people in the satellite districts of the state with food, ration and other daily necessities. Personal hygiene essential items will be distributed all over the state including 24 paraganas and East Medinapur.

While helping out, the care of sanitation from corona virus will also be taken care. The helpers will wear masks, gloves, and will carry sanitizers with social distancing.

SRK shared his statement, “We must stay strong through these testing times until we can smile together again.”

Shah Rukh Khan has never stepped back to help his country when in trouble. During the corona pandemic too, he not only contributed in the PM’s Fund and CM’s Fund, but also, gave away his four-storey office for shelter homes and facilities.
