Gurugram Student Raises Covid Relief Funds In Hometown, Kuchaman

Dhruv Mantri, a class X student at The Shri Ram School in Gurugram, has collaborated with NGO Milaap to raise funds in order to donate oxygen concentrators and oximeters to the needy. In less than a week, he has raised more than Rs. 645,000 towards this cause.

In unprecedented times like this, all support matters and only collective voice can lead to change and action.

“I first wanted to target raising Rs 2 lakh thinking even this wouldn’t be easy, but my father motivated me to set a target to raise Rs 5 lakh so that it’s meaningful and more people can benefit,” said Dhruv Mantri.

There are many other school students who are coming forward to support the needy in these testing times and also raising their concern over the need to vaccinate children even as the Covid-19 pandemic rages on. Ayaan Kapoor, another student from The Shri Ram School, started a campaign #VaccinateIndianKids on Twitter, wherein the boy is appealing to the government for arranging vaccines for children in the age group of 12-17 years. His campaign has received support and appreciation from teachers, doctors and parents from across the country.

Dhruv Mantri, is a grade X student at The Shri Ram School, Moulsari Avenue, Gurugram. He lives in Delhi with his parents and younger brother. He enjoys playing football and has represented his school in various tournaments. However, being locked at home, he has recently started enjoying boxing. His inspiration for this initiative were his grandparents and his parents, and above all, a deep connection with his hometown Kuchaman in Rajasthan.
