Bahraich, uttar Pradesh :
Two sisters, aged 6 and 10, broke their piggy banks and donated their savings to help those hit by the lockdown imposed to fight the coronavirus outbreak.
Maysha Arora (6) and Alia Arora (10), daughters of businessman Gaurav Arora and students of La Martiniere Girls' College in Lucknow, have contributed Rs 5,000 each which they had saved over a period of time.
Maysha said they were inspired by their grandfather Kulbhushan Arora, who is the president of the Bahraich Udyog Vyapar Mandal, to donate their savings and help the needy.
District Magistrate Shambhu Kumar too lauded the girls' contribution and said they have set an example by donating their small savings.
"In these difficult times, the young children have opened the locks of their treasure and have contributed their small savings to the Prime Minister's relief fund. By doing so, they have proved that age has nothing to do with compassion," Mr Kumar said.
