7-year-old Maykannan Perumal Harijan was born handicapped. He had only one arm. In January 2018, we started working for ragpicker's children and noticed his missing arm. We spoke to his parents who said that they couldn't get a disability certificate for him as there had been no accident case they could use as proof, and when Maykannan was born, the hospital did not mention he was born without an arm. With a little bit of research, we managed to trace the hospital and called them to issue the certificate. Finally, Maykannan’s parents were able to secure a disability certificate for him, which gave him a few privileges. We also got him an artificial arm with a motor. His innocent smile after wearing the arm lit up our lives.

My mother is a very generous person and has always helped people in need. When she was hospitalized, a blind couple she supported spent two hours searching for her room as they had come to "see" her. I do believe there is a return in every giving act you do that cannot be quantified.

Most recently, four puppies were left on the beach. Ana Banana was dragging her back legs, and without thinking much about it, with a friend, we picked her up and took her to the vet. They said she was not well. When I was asked “Are you putting her back on the street?” - that’s how we became four, along with Isadora and Viola – my other rescues dogs. It’s always at my lowest that a new puppy arrives, the giving – if we can call it – that is always unintended. It’s more like a desperation to be able to do something good when everything else feels so out of control. Giving is about the ability to do something about it, whatever it is, if you can – you should, you must.
