Extending our helping hands towards a person whom does masonry work

We did donate almost all the required tools and equipment such as a Angle Grinder, an Impact Drill, a Wood Cutting Wheel, a Diamond Wheel, a leveling tube, a Hand saw, a Trowel, Tapes, Hand Gloves, Hammers etc., which would help this person to continue his masonry works.

He accepted these items whilst thanking with heartiest gratitude, towards all whom involved in this great deed. They saluted us with great respect having smiles in their faces when we returned back after the donation. We too came from that place with our heartfelt gratitude towards all whom contributed for this meritorious deed.

Actually, this courageous person was in a helpless state, due to the deadly Covid epidemic condition prevailed in the entire country because he had to take care of his ailing wife, two children and his old mother while doing some nonpermanent part time labor works. We gave him a hope by extending our support to do a self employment with dignity and pride which would definitely help him to feed his family.
