The donation and goodwill of rich people and organizations have been a noteworthy aspect of this pandemic. The rich and famous turned philanthropists to see people are alive to see another day. The city is battling their worst pandemic nightmare with failing medical infrastructure and lots of other factors. During this time, the donations and supplies have been a sign of relief.
The Great Great, Granddaughter of Mir Osman Ali Khan Nizam VII - Zehra Mirza, has sold her exclusive art collection, and all earnings will go in helping the poor patients battle the pandemic across the city. All her earnings from the paintings have been distributed evenly to hospitals and foundations that need help treating poor patients. As of now, she has donated 4 Lakh rupees.
Zehra is the daughter of Himayat Ali Mirza, grandson of Moazzam Jah, the second son of the last ruler of the princely Hyderabad state. Her great-grandmother is princess Niloufer who donated a lump sum during her prime, which led to the formation of Niloufer Hospital, Telangana's biggest government facility for women and children in the city. Zehra is a fashion designer and has been working towards the betterment of cancer patients ever since the pandemic began.
Currently, she is working towards the patients and poor people affected by the lockdown and helping them in whatever way possible apart from the Art sale. She draws her inspiration from her great grandfather Moazzam Jah the head of the city improvement board, whose contribution in putting Hyderabad back again after the devastating Spanish Flu of 1918 has been vital. Zehra aims to paint more and collect funds from the sale that she will use for a similar purpose.
