Venkatramam Krishnamoorthy, an Indian social worker in Dubai, just set a Guinness World Record in collecting stationery for charity.

Krishnamoorthy amassed 10,975 kg worth of items in a span of just 24 hours by receiving them from corporates, schools, and individuals in a bid to help one lakh refugee children all around the world.

The donations that he received include a massive number of 3 lakh pencils, 50,000 notebooks, and 2,000 school bags along with crayons, scissors, and sharpeners. Nearly 400 volunteers came together to make this mission a success at Dubai’s Al Diyafah School.

Now the Emirates Red Crescent organisation will deliver these to children camped in refugee holdings around the world, reports NDTV.

Krishnamoorthy’s record surpassed the previous one of 4,571 kg that was set in Saudi Arabia in 2015.

57-year-old Krishnamoorthy said, “Joyful giving is the motto of this mission. It’s all about bringing smiles on the faces of needy children around the world.”

Krishnamoorthy, who’s a chartered accountant, is a native of Tirunelvelli in Tamil Nadu. He has been a resident of Dubai since 1992 where his non-profit project of ‘education4all’ collects used books and toys and supplies them to school libraries in India and African countries.
