Recently, Devoleena had also helped a pregnant woman who was in need of a rare blood group which was very hard to get during the lockdown. One of her fans came up as a donor and walked 10 Kms, just to donate his blood. He reached on time and the pregnant woman gave birth to a baby girl. The whole family was very grateful to her for helping them in their time of need.
It is especially heartwarming to see that people with resources have not been shy in extending a helping hand during these troubling times. By spreading awareness through their social media, by donating to funds and NGOs. Acts like these give us hope that we will get through this together.
