Several reports of ordinary people coming forward to help Families of the Pulwama attack victims have come up in the past few days, thanks to the regional media. Here is one such heartwarming story of a School Principal who sold her jewellery to contribute to the cause.
Saddened by the state of the families of the CRPF soldiers who died after a terror attack in the line of duty, Kiran Jhagwal, a principal of a private school in the Bareilly area sold a part of her jewellery, bangles to be precise, and donated the money received to the Prime Minister’s relief fund. She gathered Rs 1,38,387 after selling her bangles and donated it all.
Jhagwal said, "When I saw the wives of the soldiers weeping, I thought about what I could do for them. I thought what's the use of my bangles? and so sold them and donated the money to the Prime Minister Relief Fund. The bangles were gifted by my father."
She also urged other people to come forward to support the brave soldiers of the country.
"People must come forward. We are a population of crores and if everyone donates even Re one a lot can be collected," she said.
United by grief, people from all over the country not only came out on the streets to protest against the terror attack but also lent a helping hand via donations.
