Jackie Shroff has become the face of an NGO, Thalassemics India, on the World Thalassemia Day. Bollywood actors are known to go out of the way for charitable activities. Now, Jackie Shroff also has participated in this noble act.
Thalassemics India has been working for the care of thalassemia patients and families for the last 30 years. Not just that, the actor on the World Thalassemia Day has also traveled to Delhi to raise awareness about the same.
Jackie Shroff has taken out time from his schedule to travel to Delhi. The NGO has planned a series of activities in the capital. There’s a seminar involving senior doctors and government officials and also the launch of a host of initiatives involving him.
Interestingly, there’s a personal reason for Jackie to be connected with this cause. He has joined the mission of the NGO since he has a deep connection with the noble cause. Actually, not many are aware that he and his wife Ayesha first became aware of this delicate health condition, when they were expecting their daughter Krishna Shroff.
