Actress Huma Qureshi and her ‘Army of the Dead’ director Zack Snyder have joined hands with an organisation for coronavirus relief in Delhi, the actress said in a post on social media.

They will contribute towards establishing a ‘temporary hospital facility’ to bring relief to those suffering from the disease.

“I’ve joined hands with @savethechildren_india to help Delhi fight the pandemic. They need our help now more than ever. We are working to build a temporary hospital facility in Delhi, that will have 100 beds along with an oxygen plant. The project also aims to provide medical kits to patients for treatment at home, that will include consultation with a doctor & psychosocial therapist to ensure that the patient make a full recovery. Take the pledge with me, help breath life back into Delhi,” wrote Qureshi in her post.

Director Snyder shared the news on Twitter immediately after. He wrote, “I’ve joined hands with Save The Children to help Delhi fight the pandemic. They are working to build a temporary hospital facility in Delhi with 100 beds along with an oxygen plant. Please support. #BreathofLife @humasqureshi.”

Qureshi also recently released a motion poster of her character in Snyder’s upcoming film ‘Army of the Dead’.
