Sportspersons all over the world are working hard to raise funds and make donations to help contain COVID-19. From superstar cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli to boxing legend Mary Kom and tennis superstar Sania Mirza, sports figures are doing whatever they can and donating as much they can to help the country limit the spread of the deadly virus.

Bhati has sold all the trophies, including 3 world golf championship titles and national championship trophies, to raise money for the Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations (PM-CARES).
