Ramu Dosapati is a corporate HR executive; however it’s his big heart that makes him really remarkable.
Dosapati visited a store to pick up some stuff for the birthday dinner of his son. There, he saw a woman purchasing chicken worth $2,500 dollars.
Dazed, he decided to ask the woman why she was purchasing so much poultry. This woman, who happened to be a security guard working at a migrant workers’ camp, was purchasing it for residents that needed food.
In an interview with Business Insider India, Dosapati said:
When I asked her about her salary, she said it was ₹6,000. That made me think that if a lady with ₹6,000 salary can spend ₹2,000 on the needy, why can’t I do the same?Ramu Dosapati
Ramu Dosapati then decided to accompany the female security guard to the camp. Here, he listed about 200 people that needed help. He then realized that his initial investment would last just for some few days.
Dosapati then decided to cash in his retirement fund, and with assistance from a local merchant, he opened the Rice ATM. But Dospati didn’t stop there.
He had plans of moving into a larger home with his family and had already secured some funds by selling a parcel of ancestral land. As soon as Dosapati heard that there’s a new group of workers seeking help, he got the support of his family to sort their relocation plans later.
That’s when my wife supported me and asked me to go ahead and carry on with the initiative.Ramu Dosapati
Since he launched his Rice ATM last April, his generosity has been well heard and commended. With assistance from other sources now coming in, Dosapati revealed that he hopes to keep resources coming in for the needy for a long period of time.
