One man’s waste is another man’s treasure

Economic crash was to be sure invited since the country has gone into lockdown. People are jobless, shortage of food and other basic requirements has made the life of many people no less than hell. During this time of difficulty, we need to stand strong together.
A local club of our community; Rudramati chowk has come up with a very good idea to help in this time of despair. They give out announcements to people through the megaphone, the main objective of this club is “Janata ko sahayog janata lai”. They ask people to cook extra food in their kitchen and ask them how many packets can they offer. The club provides aluminum foil containers to people and comes the next day to collect it. My mother also took two aluminum foil containers and the next day filled it with food materials. The club members then deliver the collected food to needy children who are struggling for food. This is a really nice initiative taken by the club. Similarly, many local clubs in different places have been doing various helpful tasks. Somewhere water tanks have been placed beside the road so that people can wash their hands, some clubs are giving vegetables and other groceries to the needy people of their community. Many youths have also been feeding to stray dogs, cats, and birds. All these joint efforts of people have brought a slight amount of relief to the needy ones.

“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
