Prepare masks for her village and distribute
In this challenging times here is a inspiring story of a young NCC cadet who made masks for her village to help them fight the deadly Coronavirus. Motivated by the ongoing Exercise NCC Yogdan, Senior Wing NCC Girl Cadet Sergeant Apsara Banu Khan from 4 Guj.BN stiched masks on her own and distributed them in her village.
Hailing from a remote village of Vishnoli near Petlad, she alongwith her two sisters stitched 500 masks for her village and presented them on 12 May to Sarpanch. There were 200 masks especially stitched for the more vulnerable children. She continues to stitch these masks through her own resources.
“There are around 750 families in my village and all are poor and can’t afford to buy masks from outside. So I decided to made them by my own and distribute to help them in this difficult times to fight the deadly disease,” said Sergeant Apsara Khan.
She attributes this positive thought to the training of NCC which instills “Unity & Discipline”- motto of NCC. She is 2nd year student of RK Parikh Arts & Science College, Petlad. Being the only NCC cadet in her village she is a role model to many in the village.
