John Abraham wants to open facility for ailing underprivileged children
Actor-producer John Abraham says he wants to fulfil his mother's desire and build a facility for the treatment of underprivileged children suffering from cancer.
New Delhi: Actor-producer John Abraham says he wants to fulfil his mother's desire and build a facility for the treatment of underprivileged children suffering from cancer.
John's mother has been associated with charity work for a long time, especially in aid of cancer patients.
"My mom has been taking care of children suffering from cancer for the past 15 or 17 years. Her dream is to start our own facility where children, who can't afford can be given cancer treatment," he said.
"If Make-A-Wish Foundation or Charities Aid Foundation or Amazon can also put their heads together and facilitate this cause, it will be good," said the 41-year-old at a Christmas event for the underprivileged and cancer-struck children here Monday.
As part for the Gift a Smile program, an event organised by online shopping destination Amazon.in in association with Charities Aid Foundation India, John distributed gifts to children.
He also said that whenever he is required for a social cause, he will be there.
"The last place I go is award ceremony, so I would like to be present for such causes," said John.
