The love and affection that I have received from the people of this country during my professional career and even after my retirement hold a special place in my heart. It saddens me deeply to see people suffering from the ongoing pandemic. I feel privileged to be able to make a difference and with that in mind, I would like to donate 1 BTC (Bitcoin) to Crypto Relief to help purchase oxygen supplies for hospitals across the India, ”Lee said in an official statement.
“Now is the time to come together and do all we can to help those in need. I would also like to thank all of the front line workers who worked around the clock during these difficult times. I ask people to be careful, to stay home, to wash their hands and go out only if absolutely necessary, to wear a mask and to maintain social distancing. Well done Pat Cummins for yesterday’s initiative, ”he added. (Agency)
