Gowtham Kumar, founder of Hyderabad-based NGO ‘Serve Needy’, has served food to over 1000 people in a single day and thus set a world record.
He could achieve the target on Sunday, by serving the people in three different places across Hyderabad- Gandhi Hospital, Rajendra Nagar and Choutuppal’s ‘Amma Naanna orphanage’. Identifying his initiative, Universal Book of Records India has included Kumar’s name into its books.
Speaking to the media after the achievement, Kumar said, “I started Serve Needy organisation in 2014 and now we have around 140 volunteers. We have been doing these types of social activities since 2014. But today, I have served food to more than 1,000 people single-handedly. So, it was a world record.”
“Universal Book of Records has given me the certificate for the same. My organisation’s main motto is ‘No one deserves to die like an orphan when our organisation is there’. We are expanding our organisation so that no one will die in hunger. We are expecting help from others and the government to help more people,” he added.
