Shilpa Shetty Kundra is planning to host a charity show to benefit orphan children. The actress is collaborating with British boxer Amir Iqbal Khan to host a charity concert in London that will go towards orphans in south-east Asia.

“The region’s population of orphans is rising and is close to 40 million, which is the highest in the world. They aim to create awareness about this. Amir and Shilpa want to bring several south-east Asian celebrities together for the concert,” a source informed a publication.

Helping out children is a cause close to Shilpa’s heart. The concert will take place on April 29. Shilpa confirmed the news, adding, “Turning a blind eye or shifting responsibility is not a solution for these vulnerable children, who are easy targets for sexual exploitation and human trafficking. Most people don’t understand the extent of the problem. These children are real, all 40 million of them, and have no shelter, food or hope.”
