In this Covid-19 pandemic, when patients were breathless, but ambulances refused to carry them to the hospitals as they couldn’t pay the fare as the charges were too high. Seeing them in such pain, Javed Khan desperately wanted to help them. So, his wife gave him an idea to sell her all jewelleries and buy fuel to drive those patients to the hospitals for free. After that Javed Khan informed his neighbours about his plan and shared his number on the internet for anybody in search of vehicle. Then he got a lot of phone calls flooded from everywhere asking for help saying, “Javed Bhaiya can you help us? Javed bhaiya please drive my mother to the hospital”. In two weeks Javed Khan has ferried over 100 patients to the hospitals.
