Mancherial: Brothers are meant to protect sisters during challenging times. Ramprakash Madupu, a Mancherial town-based social activist, celebrated Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi Pournami festival with a difference, here on Sunday.
He extended health insurance coverage of Rs 1 lakh for a period of a year and a sapling to four sisters Vasantha, Varalaxmi, Maheshwari and Lavanya. “The insurance cover will help them to diagnose and to treat many diseases including the deadly Covid at any private hospital for free,” he reasoned.
Ramprakash disclosed that he had bought the insurance policy of a private insurer by paying Rs 2,000 per person. He recalled that he had given sanitiser and face masks in 2020. I always would like to celebrate this festival in a unique way, he stated.
The furniture showroom owner-turned-social activist Rampraksh had founded Velugu Foundation, a voluntary organisation with an objective to raise literacy of women, to conduct medical camps and to serve the needy.
