On the eve of Ramadan, the young man distributed food items to the elderly people. He said the food items would last them for the entire period of Ramadan.
The young man made the disclosure on his Facebook page and shared adorable photos of the recipients as he urged people to also offer helping hands.
In his words:
"I bring you happy greetings from 20 elderly couples and 60 widowed mothers who are neglected by their children and were starving until I became involved."
According to Akash, he has been taking care of the couple's welfare for the past three years.
"During the month of Ramadan, these poor people suffer a lot due to lack of food. Many people fast, even without eating anything. So I decided to continue the distribution of food packs for the poor fasting people this entire month of Ramadan."

"His wife was in hospital recovering from an operation, so he goes everywhere with his son. He does not leave him with a female relative because he says, “Ngum ntanam.” The child is his and so his responsibility."
