It’s a known fact that Vijay has been involved in several charitable activities including his constant efforts towards better education. Now, the actor has also lent his hand to a child who was suffering from chronic heart ailment in real life. Yashwanth, a 13-year-old boy suffering from heart and kidney disease, in Prakasam district from Andhra Pradesh approached actor/choreographer Lawrence’s Trust after doctors had given up on him. When Lawrence realized that Yashwnath’s case involved around Rs 1.5Lakhs apart from a risky operation, the first person he approached for help was actor Vijay.
It is reported that Vijay immediately asked them to admit the boy in the hospital and agreed to undertake the entire cost of operation through his ‘Vidhya Charitable Trust’.
Yashwanth was operated recently and is healthy now. He along with his father and Lawrence met Vijay who was shooting for “Kaavalan” at Pushpa Gardens and thanked the star.
