Good People exists, this was confirmed in the corona pandemic where we have seen the citizens doing the best they could do to help others. While many were facing difficulty finding ambulance services, a man from Uttar Karnataka saved lives amid a coronavirus pandemic.

Manjunatha Ningappa Pujari, recognized as a ‘nocturnal ambulance man’ is saving lives in the regions of Belgaum, Karnataka, in his auto.

This 42-year-old had already served over 300 people by providing free ambulance services at night. He received the India Book of Records, Asia Book of Records, and Royal Success International Book of Records for his selfless aid during the pandemic.`

Manjunatha was able to ferry about 185 Covid patients in his auto-ambulance during the second wave.

“My father passed away due to Covid last year. During this, there was no one to help us, and it led me to help virus-affected patients,” Manjunatha said in a conversation with Life Beyond Numbers.

He gave a lift to some patients free of cost, and some paid for his service. Manjunatha donated all the amount he received to the Ashraya foundation and other organizations to help the needy.

Not just that, he has also distributed over 100 grocery kits in collaboration with the Prayaas team and Sanjay Kuligod, a local, and 15 kits from his end.

Manjunatha works three jobs in a day to run his family and serve the needy.
