Dutee Chand distributes food packet in her village

Indian top athlete Dutee Chand drove nearly 70 kms to her village near Bhubaneswar and distributed 1000 food packets to her village.

“This lockdown has hit hard the people in my village and I just wanted to help them in whatever small way I could. So, I took special passes and reached my village on Friday. I distributed food packets to around 1000 people,” Dutee, who has now returned to Bhubaneswar, told PTI.

The athlete who missed out the Tokyo Olympics qualifying event due to pandemic, also promised the villagers that she would come back with more food packets soon.

She had sponsors and she also spent Rs 50,000 from her money to help the people.

“It is not about the money but the satisfaction that I could do something for the society and for my village where I grew up. My parents are also happy with what I am doing,” she concluded.
