Varanasi Santoshi Raj is another good samaritan feeding hundreds of poor people in Vizianagaram. The mother of three-year-old, Santoshi Raj, has been providing free meals in the Andhra Pradesh district for a long time now.


It had started with the Kalighat Colony resident serving free food to COVID-19 patients who were in the home isolation. The number of people who were, then, only 20, have now increased to 200 as the city is facing a rise in the COVID-19 cases.
