Humanity Towards Animals
Guwahati based social worker Dr. Ashma Begum’s initiative to feed the hungry animals of the city began since the very first day of the nationwide lockdown due to Covid.
Each day Ashma arranges food for the animals and goes out to distribute in different places of the city. The district administration and Assam police came forward to support her cause during the lockdown.
Her gesture has inspired many, and a lot of people have posted their photographs of feeding the stray animals in social media influenced by her. Good Samaritan Ashma Begum spreads the message of empathy towards all living beings, ushering in a hope that the stray animals, who are dependent on human beings for survival, will not be deprived of food ever.
