Tribune News ServiceChandigarh, October 21A campaign, ‘Shaurya, Ye Diwali Veer Pariwar Ke Saath’, which will focus on expressing gratitude and paying tributes to the Indian Army martyrs’ and their families, was unveiled by an NGO, I am Still Human (IASH), here today.
The motive of the campaign is to sensitise the civilian population about the need for ensuring welfare of the martyrs’ kin, especially their children.
Under the Shaurya campaign, the IASH will collect useful Diwali gifts for children of martyrs of the Jammu and Kashmir Rifles (J&K Rifles), who are living in the regiment’s hostel in Jabalpur.
The Army had set up the hostel to take care of 65 children whose fathers were killed in the line of duty.
The trip will be flagged off from Zirakpur on October 25 and the volunteers will spend Diwali with the children.
