The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), has awarded actor Sonu Sood with the prestigious SDG Special Humanitarian Action award for helping thousands of migrant workers during the lockdown.
"This is a rare honour. UN recognition is very special. I have done whatever little I have done in my humble way for my fellow countrymen without any expectations. However, to be recognised and awarded feels good. I fully support the UNDP in its endeavours to achieve SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) by 2030. Planet Earth and mankind will greatly benefit from the implementation of these goals," Sonu said.
The actor arranged transportation facilities for migrant workers to help them reach their homes during the lockdown.
The 47-year-old actor recently launched an initiative to provide full scholarships for higher education to underprivileged students.
