On International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Shah Rukh Khan donates 50 wheelchairs.
Shah Rukh Khan is not just a great actor but he is also a great human being who has always believed in philanthropy. The actor once again showed his generous nature by donating 50 wheelchairs to para-athletes on International Day of Disabled Persons yesterday (December 3).
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the actor not only attended the send-off of Indian contingent taking part in the Asian Para Games 2018 but also lend his support to them by donating 50 wheelchairs. At the event, Shah Rukh said, “It has been a privilege knowing and associating with Deepa Malik (para-athlete) for a cause as virtuous as this. She is not just an inspiration to many but also a reflection of ourselves as we all are incomplete in one way or the other, and it is for us to embrace our imperfections and achieve our goals. Felicitating these para-athletes is a step forward in achieving the dream of representing India at the Paralympics.”
