My name is Angira Kanwar. I study in Grade 10 at the Bombay Scottish School at Mahim, Mumbai. I believe that it is my duty to help children that come from economically weaker classes of society live a better life. I want to see children playing around with joy, and not on a hospital bed.
Like most of my classmates, academics and sports are my priorities. I love playing football because it gives me determination and strength to achieve my goals in life. One of my goals is to be able to help someone to live a better life.
We live in a world without peace. Hearing about the bombings in Syria and about Syrian refugees struggling to live without basic necessites like food and water, saddens me. I have an unlimited supply of what these people need desperately and I cannot provide it to them, and that disappoints me because they deserve to live a better life.
Until today afternoon, I thought that it was not in my power to help people in immense need. When we were told about the 'Little Hearts' campaign, I immediately knew that I had to take this opportunity to save a life. The fact that a heart surgery can be done at such a low cost is another reason why I decided to do this campaign. It would bring me warmth to see a child who has gone through such a traumatic experience, back on his feet and jumping around with happiness.
