Akshay Kumar donates 50 lakhs to drought hit Maharashtra

Maharashtra is currently facing one of the worst droughts in recent years. Of the 43,000 villages in the state, 27,723 villages have been declared drought-hit and 54 out of the 75 medium dams have been declared dry. 

Following the extreme conditions, the Maharashtra government has started the Jalyukt Shivar Abhiyaan that aims at making villages drought-proof by developing water harvesting techniques including construction of ponds. 

Actor Akshay Kumar has come forward to wholeheartedly support the initiative. He donated Rs 50 lakh towards the state-led initiative. Earlier he had donated Rs 90 lakh that would be used to help support 180 families of farmers who have committed suicide.
