Just hearing stories like this makes our hearts feel full!
10-year-old Ilakkiya Ravichandran has been hearing a lot of stories about the difficulties faced by people suffering from COVID-19, so she decided to raise funds for them by making tiny dolls, which she learned during Seni class in Year 3.

According to The Star, S. Ravichandran said that his daughter put all the money she got inside a donation box for COVID-19 patients outside a petrol station in Nusa Bestari, Johor.
Not only that, but she also feeds a stray dog that suffered from a broken leg.
“I want to be a doctor who takes care of children,” she said.
Both Ravichandran and his wife are teachers. He said that she constantly reminds them about wearing face masks and using hand sanitizers when they are out in public.
“She is a creative girl. She likes arts and crafts. So, she decided to make dolls and sell them to her friends and family to raise the funds,” he added.
He also said that his daughter has always had a soft spot for the less fortunate, “She always wants to help the poor or whenever she sees someone in need like a beggar.”
Each doll was priced at RM5, and so far she has collected RM115.90. Impressive!
What a heartwarming story. Thank you for your kindness and for helping those who are less fortunate, Ilakkiya!
