On the occasion of Father's Day, Superstar Shah Rukh Khan launched his new website Meer Foundation, which aims at helping acid attack survivors.
In order to commemorate Father's Day, Shah Rukh Khan took the opportunity to launch the website of Meer Foundation, a philanthropic foundation named after his father, Meer Taj Mohammed Khan.
Taking to social media, the superstar shared this development with the whole world and tweeted, "A foundation I named after my father - @MeerFoundation - aims to create a network of support for women. No better day than #FathersDay for me to introduce our website to the world.
`On this very special day, #MeerFoundation brings to you a platform, powered by information, promising to strengthen women across the country,` the official Twitter handle of Meer Foundation tweeted.
The main purpose of Meer foundation is to enable, enhance and encourage - empower women by making them feel appreciated and inspired, and to foster humility, pride and gallantry among the men in their lives.
The superstar is not just known for his acting and performances, but also for his philanthropic work.
On the work front, the star is yet to announce his next project after the performance of 'Zero' at the box office, last December.
Meer Foundation's new website acts as an information portal for all those directly or indirectly affected by acid attacks while also providing information about the foundation to anyone who would like to understand and support the cause. The website is available in both, Hindi and English. The portal also looks like a step towards a larger national policy discussion in the near future and a positive addition to the grave issue that it addresses.
