Keeping farmers' feet warm

Ricky said, "With the help of my friends who are settled abroad, I bought nearly 250 pairs of shoes and 500 pairs of socks and distributed these among the old and needy farmers on Saturday. Now, I am planning to buy at least 2,000 pairs of shoes as a large number of farmers, need footwear at the protest site due to the prevailing cold weather."
