We are all familiar with Salman Khan’s charity Being Human and the charity work he does across the world. So, it should come as no surprise that Salman set an example by donating blood at the blood donation camp at the Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) in the Maldives. This was in support of the annual India-Maldives friendship festival 2010 where President Mohamed Nasheed, the First Lady Laila Ali Abdulla, a few ministers and senior officials of the government were also in attendance.
Having previously participated in a charity programme for the Medical Assistance Programme at Villingili Children’s Home also in the Maldives, Salman took some time out from his busy schedule to judge a children’s painting exhibition at the Iskandhar School. There he selected the best paintings and at the children’s request also sang and danced with them.
Unfortunately a small request from Salman for the media to remain outside so he could enjoy his time with the children meant there was no media in attendance, but we hear that the youngsters thoroughly enjoyed themselves — and that is what it is really about isn’t it.
