Actress Juhi Chawla, the famous Bollywood star, met thalassemic children at a treatment centre and did her bit to create awareness about the inherited blood disorder.
The Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner also donated around Rs. 100,000 from her personal fund as a commitment to the cause.
‘Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder that can cause complications, including iron overload, bone deformities, and cardiovascular illness.’
"She has committed Rs.10,000 for every match that KKR wins. From 2011 she has been doing it. It is from her personal fund and this time she donated Rs. 100,000," a representative of the Thalassaemia Society of India treatment facility told IANS.
The "Darr" actress who was recently seen in educational drama "Chalk N Duster" interacted with the children undergoing treatment and showered affection at them, the official said.
