Ambani said that although Hima had to face many troubles due to poverty and could not afford proper shoes, she made her mark by winning 5 gold medals within 20 days.
“Now, Hima is not just a gold medal winner, but she is also the brand ambassador of ADIDAS. That is the power of sports”, Ambani exclaimed. Ambani also said that the Reliance Foundation had been conceptualized to help the downtrodden of society — especially women and children, and has touched the lives of at least 34 million people thus far.
