Mumbai, Feb 8 (IANS) Actress Raveena Tandon believes that every human being should have compassion within him, especially towards the weak.
At a fundraising event for NGO IDA (In Defence of Animals), Raveena said: "I think this is very good cause by IDA to sterilise the stray and rescued animals. It is a community service. We bring those animals who are injured and hurt in accidents for treatments."
"Regarding this, an awareness is very much needed as I believe compassion is very necessary for every human being."
Raveena's children Rasha and Ranbirvardhan, who were made 'cub ambassadors' through an initiative called the Compassionate Kids Club, were also awarded at the event on Tuesday.
Raveena said: "My children made handmade bracelets and collected Rs 50,000 for the organisation as part of the Compassionate Kids Club (CKC), so they both got felicitated."
"According to the statistics in most of the criminal cases, the criminals have a history of showing cruelty towards the weaker and the animals. I would say whenever you see some sign of this type of mentality in someone, please alert them. We need to bring awareness that we should protect the weaker section not do any harm to them."
