Every time that I feel myself becoming a tad bit ungrateful during these periods of endless lockdowns and beginning to operate out of a place of privilege, I take a moment to remind myself of just how thankful I am for all the things in my life. At a time when people are losing lives and loved ones, stepping up to help others is the need of the hour. As we were taught from this mother in Guwahati, who volunteered to breastfeed newborn children in the city who lost their mothers to Covid.

A rather noble and thoughtful gesture to make during the time of coronavirus, Ronita Krishna Sharma Rekhi, a Mumbai-based celebrity and production manager has decided to do her bit in contributing to the society by offering to to breastfeed infants who have unfortunately lost their mothers to the tragedy that covid-19 is or for the ones who are isolated because their parents are battling the virus.

And besides helping herself, Ronita is also actively urging other lactating mothers to step up and consider doing the same. Ronita Rekhi tweeted, “Only for Guwahati as I live here. If any new born needs breast milk I’m here to help.”

Although requests haven’t started pouring in yet, Ronita is trying her best to amplify her message so it gets across to people who might actually need her. And all this, while taking care of her own 2 month old baby.

Ms. Rekhi spoke about her initiative and said, “This is the least I can do at this time,” and we could understand where she was coming from. Speaking about how she got inspired to volunteer for this, she recalled a social media appeal for mother’s milk for a Delhi-based woman who was in isolation after being infected with Covid. That is perhaps how Ronita came up with the idea, considering even doctors talk about how lactating mothers produce enough surplus milk to her own child’s requirement, that can be used furthermore.

And what is more to thank is also how her husband has been supporting her through the initiative, having her back. Guess, there are a few good people in the world after all!
