Hima Das has donated half of her monthly salary to aid relief efforts in Assam, her home state, which is in the throes of one of the worst spells of floods of recent times. The star sprinter, who is presently in Europe, participating in training camps and competitive meets, deposited the amount to the Assam Chief Minister’s Relief Fund on Tuesday.
The donation was part of the salary Hima receives from Indian Oil Corporation, where she is an HR officer. Hima also made an appeal to corporates and wealthy individuals to come forward with assistance. “Flood situation in our state Assam is very critical, 30 out of 33 districts are currently affected. So i would like to request big corporates and individuals to kindly come forward and help our state in this difficult situation,” she tweeted.
At least fifteen people have been reported to have died in the current spate of floods in Assam and lakhs of people have been displaced. Furthermore, 90% of Kaziranga National Park is reported to have been inundated.
