MUMBAI: Star India has launched a nationwide public service campaign ‘Ek Padosi Hi Padosi Ke Kaam Aata Hai’ with the NGO CARE India to mobilise relief for the natural disaster that struck Nepal and parts of northern India claiming more than 5,000 lives.

A massive earthquake of 7.8 magnitude struck Nepal on 25 April, 2015, the worst to hit the Himalayan Kingdom in 80 years. In India, states of Bihar, West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh have also suffered the wrath of the earthquake.

The Star India campaign will involve Bollywood celebrities like Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Anushka Sharma, Preity Zinta and a host of Star network’s icons, who will appeal to Indians for donations, which will be channeled directly to CARE India. Viewers will have an option to donate online, or through cheques or demand drafts. The campaign will work along the lines of Operation Maitri, initiated by the Indian government.

“A tragedy has struck our neighbouring country resulting in a devastating loss of life, infrastructure and resources. We believe it is our responsibility to leverage the power of television as a force for good to help mobilise relief and provide immediate life-saving assistance to those affected. We are happy to associate with CARE India, an NGO highly respected for its humanitarian and development work in India and extremely humbled to see that our initiative has been embraced by some of the leading lights of the entertainment industry to appeal for relief,” said Star India CEO Uday Shankar.

CARE India is assessing the situation on the ground in all the affected areas of Nepal and moving relief material where it is needed most. CARE has begun distribution in some of the areas and hopes to reach out to more than 50,000 people in the coming days.

“We would appeal to all Indians for funds to ramp up the emergency response and provide immediate life-saving assistance to those affected. We are thankful to Star India for helping us raise funds for Nepal where millions are awaiting humanitarian relief. The country is running out of food, water and shelter and the onus is now on us to help them,” added CARE India board chair Dr. Nachiket Mor.
