The world has come to a standstill with the cloud of pandemic that revolves around us. With so much uncertainty and the idea of what next has us stuck on to our seats of so-called play of life. On the contrary, there are people who have come forward with the same cause: to help the ones in need. One such story from Talapady is of a Gulf-employee renovating the house of an old woman.
Speaking to News Karnataka member of the Sai Pariwar Trust, Praveen Kumpala said, “A resident of the Talapady Janata Colony, Pushpa’s house was completely destroyed. It was impossible for her to stay indoors during the rainy season. The Sai Parivar Trust of Thokkattu, realised this and asked for help. Immediately Praveen Shetty Pilaru, an employee in Muscat, has responded and donated 30000 rupees to repair the roof of the house as well to renovate it. The Sai Pariwar Trust along with Mitravrunda helped to renovate this house using the amount.”
“Pushpa was also given a food kit by The Sai Pariwar Trust, which has been providing relief services to the most vulnerable and homeless during this lockdown,” he added.
Explaining other noble initiatives amid lockdown by Sai Pariwar he said, “We have been providing about 120 meals to the poor, destitute, and needy people everyday. Initially, we used to provide 300 meals per day, but after Indira Canteen started we limited the supply to avoid the wastage of food. Apart from this, we provide at least 10 poor families with a food kit worth Rs. 1500 everyday.”
“Many people have appreciated our work and voluntarily donated food kits and funds to continue our services,” he added.
