Sindhuri, a grade 6 student of Mount Rosary English Medium School, was only born with 1 fully developed arm. Despite that, she managed to stitch 15 masks and gave them to students.
Such a classy act Sindhuri!
Many people appreciated Sindhuri for her kind-hearted gesture during this coronavirus pandemic.
During an interview with ANI, a local news agency, Sindhuri said:
Initially I was hesitant to stitch with a single hand. My mother supported me to stitch the mask. Now all are appreciating me.
If you think she will stop there, she’s not.
She said that she wants to stitch around 100,000 masks for people during this coronavirus pandemic.
