Arushi Nishank, an actor, social activist, acclaimed kathak exponent, who is also an environmentalist, film producer and co-founder of Sparsh Ganga has come forward to help those affected by the coronavirus. She has helmed projects for COVID-19 relief efforts across Uttarakhand and beyond.

Along with this 200-500 more kits consisting of sanitiser and mask will also be distributed by team Sparsh Ganga in Haridwar.
Some of the resources will be handover to the DM of Haridwar and the rest of the resources will be distributed in the interiors of Uttarakhand. Arushi and her Sparsh Ganga team have also started a helpline number for beds, treatment and other facilities in Uttarakhand. Sparsh Ganga team is continuously helping people by distributing masks and sanitiser kits from the first hit of Covid-19.

Posting some pictures from the campaign, she wrote, “I am the daughter of Uttarakhand, and this is the time to extend our hands to support #Uttarakhand. Initiated covid-19 relief campaign with Sparsh Ganga team, sending ration and medical kits in the interiors of Uttarakhand.
