It’s always such a great feeling when you realise your children are concerned about the well-being of the world around them and think about how they can do their part to save it. We are sure Juhi Chawla is also a very proud mother as her son is one of those kids who got up and decided to use his pocket money to help the people and animals affected by the Australian bushfires.
In the past few weeks, bushfires in Australia have caused a lot of destruction and crumbled the wildlife and forest areas, even causing loss of human life. The situation is one that’s in need of immediate attention and people are contributing as much as they can to help them out. Arjun Mehta is one of them, and he has apparently sent 300 pounds (Rs. 28,000 approx.) from his pocket money to the organisations responsible.
According to a report in IANS, Juhi Chawla said:
I recall he had mentioned to me that 500 million animals have been killed in the Australian bushfires and he asked me ‘what are you doing about it?’ I said I’m helping plant trees in our country in the Cauvery Calling project. That was it. A day later he said ‘I’ve sent 300 pounds from my pocket money. I hope it goes to the right place’. I am really happy and grateful to God. I feel so good knowing his heart is in the right place.
The 16-year-old is currently studying in a boarding school in the UK. Juhi and her husband Jay Mehta are also parents to an elder daughter, Janhvi Mehta who is 18-years old.
