We are all aware of the horrific situation in the state of Kerala. Excessive rainfall has resulted in floods which in turn have killed over 370 people. Thousands have been left homeless and the southern state is in immediate need of help from all of us.
Rescue operations are in full swing in the state and people from all over the world are donating whatever they can to help out the lives in Kerala. But there is still a lot of help needed if the people and animals are to survive and recover from the effects of this disaster.
And now, the sex workers from Maharastra have also contributed to the relief funds sent to the flooded regions. These sex workers from Maharastra’s Ahmednagar have already donated ₹21,000 for the flood victims. But it does not end there. They will raise another 1 lakh by the end of the month.
According to TOI, this is not the first time they have shown their sympathy towards the people suffering due to disasters in the country. In 2015, during the Chennai floods, they had donated 1 lakh to help out the animals and people.
According to the Times of India, they have already donated ₹27 lakhs for the victims of Gujarat earthquake in 2001, the Tsunami in 2004, floods in Kashmir and Bihar, drought in Maharastra and to the families of the Kargil war heroes.
In a time when people are divided into two whether to donate, this was truly a wonderful gesture by them and they have every bit of our respect. Hats off to all of them.
