9-year-old boy donates piggy bank to earthquake victims in Turkey
Istanbul: This is like death! Everywhere the eye goes, there are ruins. A faint moan may still be coming from beneath him. Dead bodies are scattered everywhere. Earthquake has turned Turkey and Syria into ruins. The death toll has crossed 7 thousand. India has extended a helping hand in this plight of Turkey-Syria. India has sent relief goods by Air Force special aircraft. But not only India, the common people of Turkey, whose lives have somehow been saved by the earthquake, are also standing by the country's difficult times. They are giving away whatever is left of their accumulated capital. A 9-year-old teenager in Turkey created such an example. The money she saved in her little piggy bank to buy chocolates, she donated to charity.
Turkey and Syria were shaken by a terrible earthquake in the early hours of Monday. The magnitude of the earthquake was 7.8 on the Richter scale. A few minutes later, another terrible earthquake occurred, the magnitude of which was 7.5. After that, the aftershocks continued. At least 29 aftershocks occurred in Turkey and Syria. In this natural disaster, the two countries have become ruins in one fell swoop. More than 7,000 deaths have been reported so far. The death toll is expected to rise further. It was in this situation that a 9-year-old boy, who somehow survived the earthquake last year, reached out to help the country.
The teenager, Alperslan Efe Demir, lives in a tent. His house was destroyed by a 5.9-magnitude earthquake in Turkey's north-western province of Duce in November last year. Since then the address has been tent. Demir saw the horror of the earthquake on TV on Monday. Seeing the helplessness of thousands of people reminds me of last year. So he told his mother that he wanted to hand over the money he had saved in his piggy bank to the government for relief.
The boy's mother did not stop him. The next day he took his son to the branch of the Turkish Red Crescent. The piggy bank was handed over to the concerned authorities. Demir also wrote a letter to those whose lives were saved in the earthquake. In that letter he wrote, “When the earthquake happened in Dusse, I was very scared. When I heard about earthquakes in our various cities on Monday, I still felt the same fear. So I decided to donate my savings to the elderly and children. If I don't buy chocolate, it won't be a problem. But no child should starve or suffer from cold. I will also send my clothes and toys for the children.”
