As they say, kids are the most generous group of people. Despite their limited understanding of the world, kids are often charitable, especially to animals that include dogs. These children from Dehradun proved this point when they came together with their piggy banks to feed stray dogs in their vicinity.
This initiative came to fruition when the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc in the world. According to reports, the Dehradun children bought milk, fodder, and biscuits to feed the stray dogs.
One of the children involved is Ravi Kumar, a class 10 student from the Kinshanpur area of Dehradun. The kid mentioned that his group decided to contribute whatever they have because they felt the need to feed the stray dogs. He added that his group of friends felt pity on the dogs, especially during the community quarantine.
Ravi speaks for his friends, but the kid said that no one forced them to do it. Instead, the initiative came from the generosity of their hearts. Although they do not belong to the upper tier of the Indian society, Ravi’s group believed they could still do something.
For them, dogs are part of the society they are living in. This is why they felt an absolute responsibility for the dogs. When people learned about this act of kindness by the younger generation, Ravi’s group received admiration. But more than the respect, help as well as assistance started to pile up.
A dog rescue team from the state forest department even vowed to donate RS 1,000 monthly. The group told the kids to continue with their good deeds because they will support such advocacy. With this, Ravi’s group can now feed so many stray dogs in their vicinity. Ravi said that his friends are happy that people noticed and got inspired by their actions.
