Following a ritual every birthday, Maniesh Paul has pledged to feed the needy as he believes in the art of giving. While earlier we have seen the actor set out to physically set out for donation drives, observing the protocols amid pandemic, the actor would continue his work through other means.
Over the course of the pandemic in the lockdown, Maniesh has extended his support to varied people. Understanding the gravity of the situation the world has been caught into, helping each other is the best solution according to the actor.
The actor also launched his podcast as a medium to help the voices of people and create a platform to support the needy.
Applauding the efforts of social activist Jitendra Shunty, Maniesh Paul welcomed him on his podcast to bring to light his inspiring journey, who have actively cremated over 2000 bodies deceased by Corona virus free of cost. The actor also donated over 100 kgs of ration to Jitendra Shuntyji’s group in Delhi.
In the recent episode of Maniesh Paul’s podcast, the actor hosted Chinu Kwatra, the founder of Khushiyaan Foundation, an NGO that has been actively working to help others especially in the pandemic.
Not only did Maniesh help in highlighting Chinu’s work but also turned into a medium to extend help as Bharti Singh donated 50K to underprivileged kids via Khushiyaan Foundation through the podcast.
Earlier, Maniesh Paul has also donated shoes for underprivileged kids via the NGO in addition to collaborating with it to help BMC Safai Karamcharis to donate an undisclosed amount along with ration kits (daal, rice, alongwith other daily grocery items), post cyclone Tauktae
Last year, Maniesh Paul arranged transportation of 40 migrant workers helping them return to their hometowns and provided footwear to migrant workers who scaled their journey on foot.
Maniesh has also actively helped his staff with ration and footwear, including the watchman at his house and office amongst others.
Maniesh had also helped with ration to the paps last year, offering yet another testimony of his philanthropic side.
