Responding to an appeal, a Muslim woman travelled 40 km and reached a stranger Hindu family’s house in Kolkata to take care of two newborn twins whose mother was sent to a quarantine centre for 14 days after she tested positive for Covid-19.

The family with an ailing member was in deep trouble after all the professional centres which provide domestic helps refused to send anyone to their house. One of the family members then uploaded an appeal on a social media platform seeking help for taking care of the twins. Responding to the post, Firdous Moon, the 36-year-old teacher of a private school, turned up as a messiah for the family residing in Dum Dum.…

Firdous Moon, a resident of Pailan in South 24-Parganas district, had no experience of handling infants but she managed everything within three days she took them on her lap. Now she is feeding them after every three hours, cleaning them and playing with them when they are awake.… the grandmother of the twins… expressed her hope that Firdous’ act would encourage others to stand beside the families who have Covid-19 patients at home. “None of our neighbours came forward,” she lamented.
