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.
