Assam floods: Hima Das donates half of her salary, appeals wealthy Indians to contribute

Star sprinter Hima Das, who is a native of the northeast Indian state of Assam, has donated half of her monthly salary for relief efforts. The state is in the throes of a disastrous flood, with the death toll continually on the rise. Ninety per cent of its famous Kaziranga National Park, which houses the world’s largest population of one-horned rhinos, is inundated.
