Rakesh Awar says,
We had only heard that Salman Khan helps people. We needed help to collect funds for our child’s treatment; he needs a liver transplant which will cost us around 12 lakh rupees. Since we didn’t have sufficient funds we asked the doctor to give us some more time, so now the surgery is on July 18, 2017, it was earlier supposed to happen on May 31st.

Being Human Foundation was founded in 2007 and, since then, it has been actively involved in charity work. Every now and then, we hear of the good that the organization has been able to do for needy children. Aware of these facts, Rakesh Awar contacted the organization. He further says,
Being Human was the first charitable organization we approached and I was expecting to get a sum of 1 lakh rupees, but we got 2 lakhs instead. We also got around 5 lakh from Tata Charitable Trust, and around 3 lakh from Chief Minister’s trust. We still have to reach the 12 lakh target, but we are close. I am thankful to everybody who helped.

Everyone knows that Bhai loves kids and his charity work speaks for it. In spite of being busy with the promotion of ‘Tubelight’, he has made time to connect with children.
