UDHAMPUR: As part of proactive assistance to civil administration, Station Commander, Udhampur Military Station handed over 500 PPE kits, 10000 Masks, 200 Oximeters, 10000 pairs of surgical gloves, large quantity of hand sanitisers and sanitiser refill packs to Mrs Indu Kanwal Chib, District Commissioner, Udhampur on behalf of Northern Command at Udhampur.
Since the beginning of Covid-19 pandemic in Mar 2020, Northern Command has been providing all possible assistance to the civil administration and citizens in the UTs of J&K & Ladakh in their fight against the pandemic. As India deals with the second wave of COVID pandemic, there has been an ever increasing demand of COVID related items to save valuable human life.
Keeping in view the present situation, Northern Command has taken concrete steps towards establishing Special Covid Care Centers, sensitizing Awam on precautions, provisioning dedicated COVID care to Ex-servicemen and Veer Naris and collaborating with civil administration on host of measures. In today’s initiative, the aim was to augment the resources of the local administration with regard to COVID care of poor and needy. This noble gesture will boost the preventive measures in the area thereby restricting the infection load to the minimum.
Northern Command always strives to support the people in the UTs of J&K and Ladakh in protecting their lives and responding to the humanitarian causes directly or through the civil administration in a centralised as well as decentralized manner.
