Bollywood star Salman Khan's 'Being Human' foundation has come forward to offer help in the drought-hit Marathwada region of Maharashtra.

The foundation will provide 2,500 water tankers with a storage capacity of 2,000 litres each to the drought affected districts of Marathwada from May 6 to 31, according to an e-mail received recently  by the Aurangabad Divisional Commissioner from Salman's 'Being Human' Foundation.

Beed Residential District Collector B M Kamble said they had also received a mail regarding this from the divisional commissioner yesterday.

"We have received an e-mail that Beed district will get 750 water tanks from 'Being Human' foundation. We have informed the Divisional Commissioner for distribution of these tanks," Kamble said.

As per the e-mail, the NGO would supply 750 water tankers to Beed, 500 each to Osmanabad and Jalna, and 250 each to Aurangabad and Nanded.

People of the Marathwada region have been facing acute water scarcity caused by uneven distribution of rainfall in the state.
