When we talk about our nation , government has taken all the necessary steps and actions to keep the track of the requirements . They also initiated the donations and funds which are carried out in the proper hierarchy and many big shots of the nation did a great job by providing donations for the needy people.
But do you know the people , who spent their earning for lifetime and donated the same for COVID-19? They all are senior citizens , who did a great job which is appreciable.
The money which they could easily save for their life has been given by them for donations . The list of such 5 people is as under:
