Benefactor gifts boats to children who earlier swam to school in Gujarat

Chhota Udepur, Sep 23 (ANI): A Non-Resident Indian (NRI) couple gifted an inflatable boat to children in Gujarat to help them cross the river instead of having to swim across, as they usually did so far. Due to the damaged bridge in Gujarat's Chhota Udepur district, the school kids were compelled to risk their lives and swim across the river, holding on to a brass pot as floating aid. NRI, Virendra Bhalla said that he read about the ordeal of the school kids in an Indian daily. A trial boat sail was conducted where a bright orange life-jacket was fastened over a fluorescent yellow raincoat to the children who used the rubber motor boat to cross river Hiran and reached school. A school girl, Twinkle said that it was a great feeling sitting in dry clothes in the classroom. Sep 23, 2014
