PUDUCHERRY:  The Parent Teacher Association of Jeevanandam Boys Government Higher Secondary School on Friday came to the aid of a boy who secured an MBBS seat but was unable to continue his education because of poverty.

He secured the third rank among government school students in the plus-two examination and was allotted a seat in the Indira Gandhi Government Medical College.

However, his family found it difficult to pay the fees of Rs 62,000. After coming to know about the boy’s family situation, the association decided to sponsor Karthick’s education for two years. A contribution of Rs 40,000 was made towards his fees in the current year. Voluntary donations of Rs 30,000 with Rs 10,000 each from two people in Singapore and London was received, said Karthick.
