20 People Who Acted Like Real Heroes, and the World Should Know About Them

3 years ago

We all possess inner power and with the help of this power, people overcome incurable diseases, perform feats, and push the limits of the human body. For some people, life is an unstoppable fight against pain, weakness, and fears, but their will and dedication help them survive and achieve their goals.

Bright Side has found some amazing people who deserve respect and admiration.

An Indian man cleaned a 100-mile-long polluted river.

This Indian river used to be dirty and resembled a swamp full of trash before a man called Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal (also known as Eco Baba) decided to clean it. With the help of 200 people, he literally brought the river back to life and restored its banks. This inspired 50 more Indian villages to save their ecosystems. Such cases make us believe that the fight for the environment isn’t hopeless.
