Amid the bitter hashtags and abusive trends over social media spreading hatred in society, a young man from Jharkhand’s Giridih district has set an example of humanity.
The 8-year-old child, Nikhil from Giridih’s Bagodar area is suffering from pneumonia. He is undergoing treatment at a nursing home in Hazaribagh and needed blood for his treatment.
When Salim came to know, he reached Hazaribagh, a distance of 50 kilometers amid the lockdown. Not only that, he saved his life by donating blood to Nikhil by breaking his Ramadan fast.
Nikhil’s brother said that even a week ago, his younger brother needed blood, and at that time a positive blood was available in the blood bank. That is why he donated blood at that time.
But on Friday, doctors again needed blood to transfuse but it was not available in the blood bank. He sent the message to the village through his farmer father, Beggar Mahto. All the people were disturbed for three days, and they could not get blood.
