SRINAGAR: In a bid to provide help to the needy people in these testing times, Army on Saturday distributed ration and essentials among the daily wage earners, migrant workers and the needy in Kashmir.
Realising the problems faced by people due to lockdown announced by the Govt to prevent spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Army reached out to the disadvantaged to lend them a helping hand, a defense spokesman said.
“This initiative is being undertaken throughout the Valley at grassroots level to ensure the well being of the Awaam. Hundreds of persons were benefitted, and many more will be reached out to in the coming days,” he added.
In another continuing initiative by the Army, posters and leaflets containing various advisories and precautionary measures were posted throughout Kashmir.
“These will help educate the masses and safeguard them from the possibility of inadvertently becoming carriers of the disease. These initiatives in such trying times by Army will bring much required relief to the deprived as also safeguard the Awaam. The endeavour to reach out the population by all possible ways and means will continue in the days to come,” spokesman said.
