“Charity is a supreme virtue, and the great channel through which the mercy of God is passed onto mankind”
We all are well aware about this pandemic, CoronaVirus, which we are facing from last few months. While all of us are staying at home to be safe and avoid any contact with others for precautionary measures, there are a lot of people risking their lives to serve humanity in anyway possible. Staying indoors is the least we could do to contain the spread. Some of us have resources and can survive indoors while others starve. We actually have no clue about their sufferings and their hunger. Those who are living such a life can only relate to my words because hunger and poverty is something that is only felt when you’re the victim. The holy month of Ramadan is a way of giving up your sins while it’s also the only way we can feel the pain of those who spend a day without a meal. The fast should remind us of those people who are not able to get sufficient food in this pandemic. But actually, majority of us doesn’t even have a clue about them and the best we do is if someone approaches our door, we give them some food which will feed them for a day maximum.
But there’s a section of the society which go to the needy people and feed them. I want all of us to remember those unsung heroes of our society who risk their lives despite of knowing that the outcomes of their actions can be awful to them. Volunteers working with different NGO’s and individually collect and pack the food and reach the needy people with only one thing in their mind that is to serve the humanity in such turbulent times. They are working day and night in the project to serve mankind and fill the soul of humanity with the blood and sweat it needs.
In this self-centric society where all we think of is oursely, Humanity is still alive in the hearts of such people who voluntarily serve the needy people. We should appreciate them, and should encourage others to do the same at any level of society. This gives me a kind of relief that the future of our society is not in the wrong hands.
Contribution of these volunteers for society is appreciably. I have many of my good friends working on the ground . They make lots of efforts. Some get criticized that they are highlighting themselves but if there fame is feeding a single person then it’s obvious that there’s nothing wrong in it. And eventually only God knows the true intentions but we should not criticize them, rather we should encourage them. No matter what the reason is, they’re watering the humanity in ways we are not.
I’m not as brave as them but the least I could do was write a word of appreciation for the unsung heroes of this battlefield.
I will conclude that I would like to appreciate all volunteers working globally and all those who are contributing for them. I would like to say that we should be always among givers if the almighty has given us.
