From child labour to feeding poor children:

Ila pani chesthunna Malleshwar Rao ni social reformer aina Hemalatha Lavanam, garu notice chesi athadini tiskelli school lo join chesi financial ga help chesi Malleswar Rao ni Hemalatha garo own foundation aina Samskar Ashram Vidyalayam lo chadivinchindi. But, Hemalatha expired in 2008 and Malleswar Rao then found a job in the catering business in Hyderabad.
Rao noticed so many kids like him on Hyd Roads and which changed his mind:
Child Labour ga untu tinadaniki entho padda Rao, catering business chesthunna time lo tana lage raods meeedha food leka ibbandi pade vallani chala mandini chusadu. Vallandirlo tanani chuskunna Rao, roju catering business lo excess food tiskoni poor children ki ivvadam start chesadu. Child labourer ga unna tanani Hemalatha lanti varu adukoni…athaniki oka platform cheyadam vale ani, realise aina Malleswar Rao…tana vanti poor people kosam emaina cheyalani decide aiyyadu.

Normal catering job chesthu idi antha ela chestunnadu ane kada mee doubt well Malleswar Rao city lo unna chala hotels tho tie up aiyyi aa hotels lo miglipoina food ni collect chesukuni adi poor children from selected slum areas, roadside kids, street children ki daily 2000 members varaku okkade with the help of his friends serve chestuntadu.
Rao also runs NGO called ‘Don’t Waste Food’ to stop wastage and feed more children:
Rao’s desire to help and feed more people like him made him start an NGO called ‘Don’t Waste Food’, in 2012. Now this organisation has a number of beneficiaries who came forward to support Rao for his selfless effort of feeding people and they donate money and food to serve needy children in the city.
Ila life lo athanu face chesina situations nundi… athani la evaru akali tho roju chacchi brathakoddu ane mana Malleshwar Rao thought ee roju ento mandi poor children akalini tirustundi. Manaki enduku le ani pakkana valla alochindadam manesina ee janala unnaru ee rojullo. Alantidi pakkana vallu naa laga evari ibbandi padoddu…akali tho assale suffer avoddu ane Malleswar Rao aashayam goppadi.
