Karthi for a cause

Karthi Sivakumar has become the cause ambassador for Lysosomal Storage Disorders (LSD), and called for support from the media to create greater awareness on the disorder so that, many would come forward to help the affected children.

Talking to journalists in Chennai on Saturday, the actor said, "Experts in the field say only six out of 40 LSDs can be cured through treatment such as enzyme replacement therapy. I request corporate firms and other institutions to donate to the cause and lend a helping hand to the affected children."

LSDs occur when the lysosome, the recycling centre of the cell, malfunctions, resulting in the breakdown in the cell. Depending on the area where the cell destruction happens, the patients suffer from organ failures and muscular disabilities.

This is not the first time for Karthi to lend a hand for a cause. Recently, he adopted a white tiger named Namratha at Vandalur zoo and contributed Rs 72,000 (which would cover six months of her expenses).

He said, "Awareness has to be created in the need to protect the animals, and I would like to visit the various wildlife sanctuaries during my free time."
