70-year-old Kamalamma donates 90% of her pension to combat Coronavirus

Though the contribution seemed negligible, it was really big for the elderly woman who earned a livelihood by working as a housemaid. However, due to the COVID crisis, she lost her job as all house owners told her not to work considering her age factor.

It's been more than a year since India has been relentlessly fighting the battle against COVID-19. In this fight, people from all quarters of society have come forward to extend their support. One such valuable contribution was made by the resident of Chennagiri Koppal, Mysuru Kamalamma. 

The 70-year-old woman who receives Rs. 600 pension per month donated a major chunk of payment to an NGO in the city. The organization's members asked her to keep the money however she requested them to take the money to help the needy. 

Last year, a photo of Kamalamma donating money got surfaced on social media and went viral. She donated Rs. 500 from her pension which is Rs. 600 she receives. After donating she said that it is a small amount but please accept. Kamalamma also donated Rs 500 from her pension to Chief Minister's COVID-19 Relief Fund.

Though the contribution seemed negligible, it was really big for the elderly woman who earned a livelihood by working as a housemaid. However, due to the COVID crisis, she lost her job as all house owners told her not to work considering her age factor.

As per reports,  Kamalamma had no means for food during the lockdown. After hearing her plight, a local area leader Mahadev approached Talakadu Manjunath of Rotary Heritage Mysuru to support the woman as the Club had launched free food distribution 'Annadaana' in the city.

Manjunath had informed the volunteers to supply food to the 70-year-old woman and make sure that she receives food packets daily.
