The impact of Assam floods on the life and property of the state has drawn the attention of actor-singer couple Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas.
To deal with the crisis, Priyanka Chopra and her husband Nick Jonas have donated towards Assam flood relief measures and have asked their fans to do the same.
“While we are all still dealing with the effects of the global pandemic, the Indian state of Assam has been grappling with another major crisis. It has been devastated by floods triggered by heavy monsoon showers affecting the lives of millions,” Priyanka, who has 26.3 million Twitter followers, said in a tweet on Monday.
“The impact to life and land/property is unimaginable. The rapidly rising water level has also flooded the Kaziranga National Park, one of the finest wildlife sanctuaries in the world,” the former Assam Tourism brand ambassador added.
“They need our attention and support. I’m sharing details of a few credible organizations that are doing some good work on the ground in Assam, and Nick and I have made a donation to each. Let us support them so they can continue to help those in need. #Assamfloods #PrayForAssam #AssamNeedsHelp @PRIYANKACHOPRA,” the actor further said.
