It’s is rightly said that age can’t deter us from doing great things. Time and again, we have seen several kids doing exemplary social work at a very tender age. Now, this 5-year-old, Indian origin boy living in England, has proved that we can move mountains if we are dedicated enough to.
Aneeshwar Kunchala, whose parents hail from Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh, has managed to raise around Rs 3.7 lakh towards India’s COVID relief fund by cycling 4,300 kilometres, reported Times Of India.
The little champ kick-started a campaign called ‘Little pedallers Aneesh and his friends’, on May this year, wherein he along with his 60 friends pedalled across the streets of UK. Soon after, donations towards his fund started pouring in from across the globe.
"We are raising lots of money…to help all the sick people at the doctors get better"

Aneesh also took part in a cricket challenge named ’10 days, 1000 hits cricket challenge’ to raise funds for the National Health Service workers in the UK, reported News18.
Thanks so much @WHHNHS NHS for taking time to appreciate Aneesh's efforts. Aneesh was very excited looking at the certificate @kunchala_anil @Andrew007Uk @poonamkaurlal @uday_nagaraju @warringtonworld @arandhillonWG @GiveIndia https://t.co/ea0dtu97uC pic.twitter.com/LdXdhqXKlU

Aneesh’s extraordinary feat was lauded by a politician Andy Carter from Warrington South who also paid a visit to him. In an interview, Aneesh said, “I am happy to meet Andy and would like to do tons of challenges like these to help doctors and also fight against Covid-19.”
Kudos to 5-year-old Telugu boy Aneeshwar Kunchala who cycled 100 kms in Manchester and raised 2.6 lakhs to support those fighting #Covid_19 pandemic in India.

Earlier, little kids also donated their piggy bank savings to the COVID-19 relief fund. Well, it is commendable and heartwarming to see these little kids coming forward to support their fellow citizens in such testing times.
