A physically-challenged person shows the way - Kakinada ( AP )

G. Krishnamurthya, 60-year-old physically-challenged man from Hyderabad, is offering help to those who are in need of money. A stock-broker by profession, Mr. Krishna Murthy had been paralysed by 80 per cent due to the tuberculosis inflicted to his spine card when he was 10.

“I am not in a position to spend money from my pocket, but I am able to provide a platform for those who are in need of money and those who wish to spend on philanthropy. My role is to check the credentials of the needy and introduce them to the donors. The needy can call me on my mobile phone number 99481-56392,” Mr. Krishnamurthy announced while addressing a meeting organised by Sri Ramakrishna Seva Samiti here to mark the birth anniversary of Swami Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. He was one of the three speakers who graced the occasion and felicitated by the Samithi.

Thirty one-year-old K. Rajesh of Hyderabad is on the job of providing medical help to orphans. A certified male nurse, Mr. Rajesh offers shelter, food, treatment and medicines to those who suffer chronic ailments. “I am taking care of destitutes suffering cancer and other chronic ailments,” he said, adding that he got inspired by the preaching of Swami Vivekananda. Ch. Suryanarayana, president of the Samiti, announced a contribution of Rs. 1 lakh each to Mr. Krishna Murthy and Mr. Rajesh on the spot.

Penke Nukaraju, auto-rickshaw driver from the city, had been on the job of distributing rice to the rickshaw pullers who lost their livelihood due to dominance of the three-wheelers. He collects about 500 kg of rice from philanthropists every month and distributes the same to about 100 rickshaw pullers who were aged and could not go for work. “The credit goes to the philanthropists,” he said in a humble tone.
