Towards the end of our relief distribution, the weather suddenly turned gloomy and overcast. A storm was on its way. I asked the ladies why they kept waiting till the end as they had already received their share a long while back. I was prompting them to make their way home or else they would be caught in the storm. To which they replied, “In this huge crowd we did not get an opportunity to thank them. We want to personally thank all of you and show our gratitude. We will leave once we do so.”
Undaunted by the huge storm brewing, these ladies waited patiently till the end.
