Kathua (Jammu and Kashmir): The Indian Army’s Gurj Division has donated Covid-19 related medicines and medical equipment to people living in villages in Kathua district, under operation ‘Sadhvabna’.
Medical kits that include sanitizers, PPE kits, face masks, general medicine, along with oxygen cylinders were provided to the authorities for further distribution to the needy people in the border village of Bobiya in Hiranagar sector of Kathua, on the Zero Line.
Sarpanch Bharat Bhushan and Medical Nodal officer Dr Supriya Sharma praised the efforts of the Indian Army to help the border villagers and thanked them for providing the medical resources needed to fight the pandemic.
“It is a very good initiative taken by the Army for a border village, where no one can reach and people looked up to the medical team. We are grateful to them for providing us the PPE kits, sanitizers, COVID medicine, gloves, masks and an oxygen cylinder. We are very grateful to them,” Dr Sharma said.
Expressing gratitude to the Army for their initiative, Bhushan said, “Along with the protecting the country, the Army also takes care of the health of people. Earlier, the village had to purchase these medicines for Hiranagar, but now with the Indian Army’s help, we will have enough stock of the medicines for the village.”
He told that the medicines would be given to the villagers through the sub-centers in a day or two.
The army personnel also assured that they will extend all possible help under operation Sadhbavna to the brave people of the border.
