As donations in the form of cash and kind continue to pour in from all spheres to support the frontline workers fight the Covid-19 pandemic in Arunachal Pradesh, kids from the state are also not far behind when it comes to showing humanitarian gestures.

Setting an example for many to emulate, Kenli Bam, an 8-year-old on Monday emptied his piggy bank and handed over the money to the West Siang unit of Arunachal Pradesh Doctor’s Association (APDA) for its ‘Masks for All’ campaign.

‘Masks for All’ is a mask distribution campaign, initiated by the APDA.

The doctor’s association has so far distributed thousands of masks free of cost all across the state.

Kenli, who studies in Kidzee School, Aalo in West Siang district handed over his savings so that the APDA could buy face masks and distribute the same to the needy ones.

Earlier this month, a 4-year-old had emptied her piggy bank to help the frontline workers fight the Coronavirus crisis.

Nending Evlyn, from Abotani Colony in Itanagar had won the hearts of many after she donated her entire savings for the police personnel.
