Sumeir said,” Even though under the PM Cares scheme, the government provided funds for children orphaned due to Covid-19, still a lot needs to be done. Not only the government, but citizens should also help those in need. My ‘Helping Feet Initiative’ aims at providing the underprivileged children with proper footwear. A large number of poor children still walk barefoot to their schools. This impacts them physically and psychologically. “
