Despite being over 5,000 miles away from his hometown, one Indian restaurant owner is doing all he can to help battle coronavirus in India.
Namaste Village in Norwich is hosting a fundraiser in the form of an unlimited buffet meal on May 18 as they look to raise money to help supply more oxygen to India as they battle Covid-19.
Vijay Jetani, the owner of Namaste Village, said: "It's already a difficult situation that might become more difficult, so we want to play our part.
“There is a problem so we looked to see what we could do to help out.
“Nobody is safe until we are all safe.”
Mr Jetani, a former president of the Norfolk and Norwich Indian Society (NANIS) is from a village of 10,000 people near Bhavnagar City in Gujarat.
The restaurant on Queens Road is encouraging all customers to make a donation of any amount, with them promising to match those funds and contribute together towards the cause.
