The children from Mysuru Buguri Library took initiative and collected old clothes and raised funds of Rs. 5000 from the people in their basti (settlement) to purchase blankets, biscuits and water for the flood relief operations in Kodagu. The collected things have been handed over to the local media channel.
Knowing our (waste-pickers)children’s economic status I didn’t expect anything from them for this operation. Our Buguri kids proved me wrong and showed that we can also contribute something in our own capacity. This incident makes me speechless. Our children’s humanity towards the Kodagu and Kerala made me proud!
