Sonam Kapoor Lends a Helping Hand and Heart for Children with Cancer
Sonam Kapoor has put her clout behind a charity foundation that helps meet the nutritional needs of children afflicted with cancer and is going a step further to promote the cause.
The actress is going to host a charity gala dinner to raise funds for kids suffering from cancer. Sonam was recently spotted at Tata Memorial Hospital, Parel, spending time with the kids at the children’s cancer ward. A source told a leading daily, “She spent a lot of time reading out stories, poems and distributing gifts to the kids. She is actively involved with the doctors and nutritionists to ensure that these kids get the best of the facilities available,” adding, “To take things into her own hands, she decided to host a charity gala dinner, which will be a fundraising event to enable the foundation to gather funds and help cancer patients.”
Of her initiative, she said, “We end up taking things that come easy to us for granted, including the food we eat. When I heard about the work that the foundation is doing, it made me realize how important correct nutrition is during cancer treatment. This dinner, I hope will shed light on the efforts made by the foundation, and also raise funds for these little fighters.”
