Salman Khan is known for his generosity and espousal of worthy causes. He has now taken up the issue of bone marrow donation, which is acutely needed in the country and could help treat conditions like leukemia.
"Salman first got to know about the lack of bone marrow donors through a friend. He has become quite net savvy of late and did a lot of research on the topic himself," a source told the Times of India. "Compared to other countries, the situation in India is quite primitive."
The source added that Salman intends to work through the Being Human Foundation to promote awareness about the issue and also to give funds to the campaign.
The star has already decided to donate his bone marrow and is urging friends to do the same.
