Meet the couple that donated earnings to help poor families for 20 yrs

Who says you have to be Bill Gates and build a foundation like the IT moghul did to help the poor. Meet an Indian couple, Shinod PC and Bindhu, who have been on a quest to aid disadvantaged families for 20 years. The couple from Kodungallur, Kerala, contribute a significant percentage of their salary as a ‘benefit pension’ to numerous underprivileged families in the surrounding villages.

They distributed money from their salaried salary as a monthly welfare benefit. After the government raised the amount given out as part of social welfare pension programs, many families were able to have a consistent monthly income.

The couple don’t keep a record of how much money they spend on charity, but disburse around Rs 20,000 in welfare pensions every month.
