Tribal villagers from a secluded part of Odisha have shown great empathy. Establishing an example, every family of the tribal-dominated Dangapal village under Jujumora village donated money to the PM-Cares Fund. The villagers have contributed Rs 27,000 from their limited savings.
Situated 35 km from Sambalpur, the village comprises of 300 families, 200 of whom are tribals. Their weak economic status did not deter them from contributing whatever they could muster.
Members of Utsav Parivar Social and Cultural Trust of the village collected money from people who had voluntarily agreed to contribute by visiting every house in the village.
