Deepika Padukone extends helping hand to save acid attack survivor’s life


Acid attack survivor Bala, who is struggling for life, has found a new hope in star actor Deepika Padukone. The top-rated actress has extended a helping hand to save her life.


The acid attack survivor is suffering from a life-threatening kidney ailment and is in urgent need of a kidney transplant to survive. After the word reached Deepika, she donated a generous amount of Rs 10,00,000 to the ‘Save Bala’ campaign.


A real-life star, Bala has also featured in the Deepika Padukone-starrer movie ‘Chhapaak’, directed by Meghna Gulzar, besides appearing on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. Her condition is deteriorating every day due to the failure of both her kidneys and is somehow surviving on dialysis. Being an acid attack survivor, her weakened immunity is already a threat to her life.


Bala still requires further monetary help to come out of this tragedy and on behalf of her, the Chhanv Foundation is seeking as much support as possible. The fundraising campaign called ‘Save Bala’ has been started on the crowdfunding platform ‘Milaap’.
