Sometimes the smallest helping hand can make a world of a difference, especially with children. They don’t ask for much and something as simple as toy can light them up with the brightest smile.
Ravi Singh is CEO and founder of Khalsa Aid, a humanitarian organization based in England that is focused on "the Sikh principles of selfless service to humanity." Recently, Singh shared two photos. The first was of a refugee girl that didn't get a toy during distributions, and the second photo was of the same girl smiling after going to the market to buy her a doll and giving it to her. He was at the camp doing work for the organisation when he met the girl, whom he doesn’t wish to name. “I was installing water filters in the camp
our local volunteer/translator Teddy when I saw a local person distributing old toys to the children in the camp,” he said. “As expected there was a huge commotion and after the distribution was completed, I saw this little girl crying into the arms of her father, she was very distraught. I asked Teddy to find out why this girl was so upset. The father explained that she didn’t receive a toy. It broke my heart. It seems her whole world had ended." Singh realised that many of the children in the region have nothing at all, and that a toy
can mean the world. He decided to speak with Teddy in order find a place to buy a doll for the young girl. The gesture was met with complete bliss by the little girl. “She had a huge smile! A smile to melt even a rock! Of course, she gave a big hug, too. God bless her” said Singh.
