Priyanka Chopra, Will Smith and Other A-Listers To Perform Today On 'iForIndia'

Some of the biggest celebrities in the world are coming together to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts in India.

Priyanka Chopra, Will Smith, Bryan Adams and other A-Listers will be performing today at 18:00 (GST) throughout a four-hour virtual fundraising concert, organized by GiveIndia (which is associated with over 100 NGOs) and Facebook.

All funds raised from  'iForIndia' will go to “those who have no work and no home and do not know where their next meal is coming from.”

India’s 1.3 billion people have been in lockdown since March 25. Restrictions have recently been eased, but they are expected to last until May 17. The lockdown in India has stranded millions of migrant workers leaving them without basic necessities such as food, water and a shelter.

“We have already received tremendous support for our missions to provide humanitarian aid to those most affected by this crisis, particularly migrant workers and daily wagers. But with the concert going live on the world's largest social media platform, it will help reach the millions of people who want to contribute to this war-like effort,” CEO of GiveIndia Atul Satija said.

The concert will be live globally on Facebook ( today May 3 at 18:00 (GST).
