Stepping Up When Many Stepped Back

Recently, a video of her carrying the oxygen cylinder on her brother's bike had gone viral and won many hearts, reported The New Indian Express. With lockdown restrictions, it was challenging to arrange an oxygen cylinder for the patient, however, she decided to the help in saving the patient's life.

"It is our duty to save humanity from the clutches of the COVID-19. The Youth Congress is funding my initiative to provide cylinders and other social work, with some contribution from my father," said Habeebunissa.

The publication reported that her father had been facing difficulties in making the ends meet amid the crisis but is proud of Habeebunissa's efforts to help the society.
