Mark spends a lot of his time at the Jeevarathni Foundation, which is a home for destitute children in Hosur, between the border of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
To the world, Mark Rego is a popular pub quiz master in the city of Bangalore.
But to hundreds of destitute children, he is akin to a father.
Mr. Rego was diagnosed with cancer 7 years ago and he has been a changed man ever since. Wanting to make a difference in the lives of people, he now helps raise funds for charities that work with orphans, underprivileged children and cancer patients.
“They are mostly from poor backgrounds, some are orphans and others have parents who are unable to take care of them. A few were rescued from the streets where their parents had left them to beg”, he told BBC
According to Mark, “giving away your spare money” is not really charity.
The world needs more of such good samaritans!
