Free food for homeless people at Indian restaurant

Minu Pauline is the owner of ’’Pappadavada’’, a famous restaurant in Kochi in India. One day, she saw a homeless woman eating leftover food from a trashcan. Pauline couldn’t help but feel moved by the site of this woman’s plight, and realized that she had to do something.

So she decided to put a fridge full of food right on the street for those who need it. The fridge is open 24/7, and anyone can take a free meal from it. Pauline adds 78-80 new meals there every day. Other local restaurants and people who care about the homeless also regularly fill the fridge up with food.

â–¶ Malala Yousafzai, Kailash Satyarthi Awarded Nobel Peace Prize – YouTube.

Malala Yusafsai is the youngest ever Nobel Peace prize winner, whereas Kailash Satyarthi is in his sixties. She comes from Pakistan, he comes from India: their countries are close neighbors yet have often been at war since the Partition of India in 1947. She is a woman, he is a man, but both fight for the rights of children (all children!) to freedom and education. She is a Muslim, he is a Hindu: the proof that different religions can agree and work together towards a humanitarian goal that is common to both. Their joint prize is a message of hope for the world!
