Former Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar has kept himself busy in his retirement days by occasionally speaking around cricketing matters. While Sachin Tendulkar keeps giving interviews, analyses India’s performances, and certain batsmen’s techniques; however, the striking feature has been showing his philanthropic side. The former batting legend displayed his humane side by sponsoring the treatment of some underprivileged children across six Indian states.
It has emerged that Sachin Tendulkar provided financial assistance to 100 children from low-income families in the states of Maharashtra, West Bengal, Assam, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Tendulkar carried out this heart-warming or noble act in partnership with his and another foundation called Ekam that assists children in receiving treatment in government and trust.
The children sustaining from acute diseases and having challenges to get the much-needed treatment are backed by Tendulkar’s charitable organisations. Not too long ago, the highest run-getter in Test and ODI cricket lent his support to Assam’s Makunda Hospital in Karimganj district with pediatric equipment needed to treat more than 2000 kids every year.
Managing partner of Ekam Foundation heaps heavy praise on Sachin Tendulkar:
Ameeta Chatterjee, the managing partner of Ekam Foundation, has been thoroughly satisfied, with the 47-year old’s contribution through his foundation, doing some great work in the healthcare aspect. The association has received recognition for providing quality health care for the deprived or underprivileged.
“The association with Mr Sachin Tendulkar through his foundation has been very fruitful and Sachin has done some very good work in the healthcare space. The association has worked towards providing quality health care for the underprivileged,” Chatterjee said as quoted by Times Now.
