A heartwrenching video of a toddler trying to wake up his dead mother at Bihar’s Muzaffarpur railway station had gone viral. The video brought to light the tragedy of migrant workers returning to their native places. Shah Rukh Khan’s Meer Foundation has now come forward, offering help and financial support to the child.
SRK’s Meer Foundation shared a picture of the child with his grandparents and said it will be looking after his well-being.
“#MeerFoundation is thankful to all who helped us reach this child, whose heart-wrenching video of trying to wake his mother disturbed all. We are now supporting him and he is under his grandfather’s care,” the organization’s tweet read.
Shah Rukh Khan too thanked the people in helping them reach the family of the child. He said he understands how it feels to lose a parent. He further added that his love and support will always be there with the “little one.”
Thank you all for getting us in touch with the little one. We all pray he finds strength to deal with the most unfortunate loss of a parent. I know how it feels…Our love and support is with you baby. https://t.co/2Z8aHXzRjb
