In A Humanitarian Gesture, Bahrain's Prime Minister Donates Money To Odisha Man & His Family

Sometimes help presents itself from unexpected corners. Remember Dana Majhi - the Odisha man who walked 12 km with his wife's dead body on his shoulder? He has just been offered help from none other than the Prime Minister of Bahrain. Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa was so upset by Dana Majhi's plight that he decided to extend financial support to the man and his family.
The world can take notice of an Indian man in distress but as Indians, we are not even close to even acknowledging the poor man's plight. Reported by The Gulf Daily News, "His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa read about the man, who carried his wife’s body for 12 km after the hospital where she died allegedly failed to provide an ambulance for her to be sent back to their village."
The Gulf Daily News also became aware "that the Premier was so upset by the news that he felt he had to do something to help. He could not just stand by and do nothing about such suffering. The Prime Minister’s office contacted Bahrain’s Indian Embassy, and, in an extraordinary humanitarian gesture has donated a sum of money to help the man and his family." It is not known how much money the Prince has decided to offer.
