The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has helped as many as 3000 families in Thailand as the country goes through the difficult phase of coronavirus pandemic
Bengaluru: Altruism knows no boundaries, does it? At a time when the coronavirus pandemic has spread its tentacles far and wide, devouring lives at will, Vishwa Hindu Parishad has jumped to the rescue of people even in a far-off land like Thailand.
The range of rescue mission enlarges itself from distributing food packets, manufacturing masks, reaching out and giving them in places facing a scarcity, distributing bed sheets and blankets and providing basic medicines etc.
As part of its community sewa programme, the VHP has helped as many as 3000 families in the 9 districts of Bangkok in May and June 2020.
As the VHP helps these families, care has been taken not to violate health norms like social distancing among others. Efforts have also been made to distribute 15,000 kilograms of rice to the needy. For this purpose, the VHP has been in consultation with the local authorities and serving the needy and necessitous throughout.
As reported by a popular website, President Susheel Kumar Saraff, VHP said that they have been staying in Thailand for over 30-40 years. They are what they are because of the people of Thailand. Now the time has come to repay for whatever we have received from this country. “These small social contributions are our way to thank the country,” said Susheel Kumar.
It is not just the VHP. The RSS too has been doing its bit to help mankind.
