Pathanamthitta: As part of flood relief activities, a class 9 student managed to contribute 350 kg rice for the relief camps. Vasudev, student of Pathanamthitta Amrita Vidyalayam, was inspired by a Facebook post put up by district collector P. B. Nooh requesting help for flood victims.
Vasudev spent his savings for buying the rice. Rs 11,188 was found when he counted his savings. Without any delay, Vasudev and his father bought seven rice sacks and carried them to the collection centre at Pramadam Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium.
Last year, Vasudev had donated Rs 6500 to the Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund (CMDRF) during the flood havoc. Vasudev is son of Kumbazha native N. V. Dinesh and Dini.
