Varun Dhawan Helps Farmers Dealing With Water Crisis In Maharashtra By Raising Funds

Varun Dhawan is one of the most loved stars of Bollywood. From kids to the oldies, he is every generation’s favorite. After establishing himself as one of the most preferred choices of filmmakers, Varun is now following the footsteps of many stars by giving back to society.

Varun Dhawan will now raise funds for farmers in Maharashtra, with the help of Arjun Kapoor’s sister Anshula Kapoor’s online fundraising platform called ‘Fankind‘. As a part of a campaign, that has already started from August 5, a fan will get to play a game of paintball with Varun.

In order to be a part of the campaign, fans will have to buy entries for a minimum of Rs 300 or more. This will enable them to become a part of a random selection process by a third party.

All the entry money received will further go for the welfare of farmers by providing resources to the NGO Manavlok Foundation.

Talking about the campaign, Varun Dhawan said:

The severe water crisis in Maharashtra has affected farmers the most. The prolonged drought has resulted in a loss of agricultural livelihood. Which is why the funds we raise through this first Fankind experience will support Manavlok Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that works with farmers and provides them with resources such as irrigation systems, fertilizers, seeds, saplings, and new training,”

Furthermore, Varun Dhawan added that the donations will be  used towards their “horticulture project to help farmers supplement their existing income by cultivating non-traditional crops that are suited for the local land and can survive the drought.”

Anshula Kapoor also shared a video of Varun Dhawan introducing fankind. She wrote:

Fankind’s first experience with Varun is now live!!
Want to hang out & play paintball with @VarunDvn? Simple! All you need to do is make a donation at Fankind.org/varun for your chance to hang out with him.
