A Good Samaritan Act

High Court advocate Sunil Kumar is quite well known for his noble work. He has had a humble background and used to live in the slums of Goregaon East for almost 30 years during his growing up years. During COVID-19 Lockdown, Sunil Kumar has again decided to wear the Good Samaritan hat. He has decided to help the poor people and help them with daily essentials.

Sunil said, “Everyday we used to provide groceries and daily essentials to 20 families. Soon, many more people started gathering to volunteer for this noble work and he started the Daksh Nagrik Foundation, which gives away groceries to needy people. Today, the foundation provides groceries to more than 1200 families.”

He added, “I also want to start law insurance, just like we have medi claims and life insurance. I grew up in the slums, where we did not even get clean water to drink. In 3000 rupees, I want to give services for law insurance to people for one year.”

He also said, “I could have died of dengue, malaria or any other disease, but I am fit and fine. So I want to serve the needy people and support them. I am thankful that many people and friends have joined me in this initiative.”
