Gautam Gambhir's gesture on Children's Day wins hearts of Harbhajan Singh & Twitterati — WATCH

Gautam Gambhir has never backed down from helping the children, he even launched an initiative to help the underprivileged in August, 2017

From helping the deprived to standing up for Kargil martyr’s daughter Gurmehar Kaur, Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir is known for his generosity and standing up for issues of national importance. Gambhir launched his foundation – Gautam Gambhir Foundation (GGF) which aims at feeding the hungry and in August, the 36-year-old launched a campaign named ‘Ek Asha’ which aims at providing food to underprivileged kids.

The two-time World Cup winning opening batsman feels that setting up daily kitchens to feed the poor is as special as winning World Cup or Indian Premier League (IPL).
