Mangaluru, Nov 6: Youths of Team Hanuman of Ullal donned costumes during Navarathri festival and gathered money for the treatment of a five-year-old girl who is suffering from a heart-related ailment.
Shreya, daughter of Ranjini, a resident of Dharmanagara Ullal, is the girl who is suffering from a heart related disease. The medical treatment involves an expenditure running into lacs of rupees.
Ranjini is financially poor and unable to bear the expenses. Seeing the plight of the family, young boys of Team Hanuman donned Yakshagana style outfits, went to every home in the locality and collected money.
They also made a tableau of Goddess Sharada to take part in the Ullal procession and enhanced the beauty of the programme. The youths handed over a cheque for Rs 1,67,649 at the Naga Sanidhya to Ranjini, mother of Shreya.
Last year too, youths of Team Hanuman had gathered Rs 1.26 lac during the Navarathri festival and donated it to Shriya, a five-year-old girl living in Moodbidri towards her cancer treatment. Now the girl is cured of cancer and she goes to school as per the information provided by Jagadish Goliyadi, chief of the team.
