Megastar Chiranjeevi has once again proven why he's worthy of his moniker of 'Megastar', and lives up to it time and again in real life, too. The actor has now spearheaded the Corona Crisis Charity (CCC), which has been set up with the aim to help film workers and small artists across the Telugu film industry during these distressing times. Chiranjeevi himself has donated Rs. 1 crore and all other actors, directors, producers made big contributions. CCC supplied 50 kg worth of groceries for four months for nearly 40,000 workers. Now the Megastar has started a mega vaccination drive to the Telugu Film workers at his Chiranjeevi Eye and Blood Bank premises in association with Apollo 24/7.
Chiranjeevi who has been doing a lot of philanthropic activities with his Eye and Blood Bank recently also established Oxygen Banks in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana addressing the Oxygen shortage in the COVID second wave, also thousands of Oxygen Concentrators to needy. His son, Ram Charan, himself is supervising the Oxygen Banks initiative. With the coronavirus pandemic shaking the country to unimaginable bounds, making people run from pillar to post, many of them succumbing to oxygen deprivation, both Megastar Chiranjeevi and his son, Mega Power Star Ram Charan, have risen up to combat COVID-19 by starting an oxygen bank to curb the crisis across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
