After distributing smartphones to the students of a government school in Chandigarh, Sonu Sood yet again helped students who were struggling to access online classes at Morni. The actor started the initiative with his friend Karan Gilhotra. They installed a mobile tower in the village to enable uninterrupted connectivity with Indus towers and Airtel.
The situation came to light after a video on social media showed a child from Dapana village, Morni sitting on a tree branch to catch mobile signals to help other children to complete their homework tagging Sood in the post.
Talking about this initiative, Sonu commented “Children are the future of our nation and they deserve an equal chance to a better future. I believe such challenges should never stop anyone from reaching their full potential. It is my honour to help set up a mobile tower in the remote village to help these kids access online classes. They no longer have to climb trees to catch mobile signals.”
Since the lockdown phase began, actor Sonu Sood has generously worked towards helping those in need and he was recently honoured with the Special Humanitarian Action Award by the UNDP.
"This is a rare honour. A UN recognition is very special. I have done whatever little I have done in my own humble way for my fellow countrymen without any expectations. However, to be recognised and awarded feels good. I fully support the UNDP in its endeavours to achieve SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) by 2030. Planet Earth and mankind will greatly benefit from the implementation of these goals," Sonu said on being acknowledged by UNDP.
