Prepare calendar for Red Cross activities: Governor
Jammu, Mar 21 : Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra today advocated for calendar of activities of Red Cross Society to involve people for the noble cause.
Mr Vohra who is also the president of the Indian Red Cross Society, Jammu and Kashmir State Branch, asked General Secretary Roma Wani to draw up a calendar of year long activities of the Red Cross by involving districts as focal points to have a larger number of people working for this noble cause.
Ms Wani called upon the Governor at Raj Bhawan here this afternoon.
Mr Vohra also stressed the need for enlarging the resource base to boost Red Cross activities and suggested approaching corporate and business houses, philanthropic organisations and public at large to contribute generously towards Red Cross.
Emphasising the need for intensifying the Red Cross activities across the state and extending their ambit to the Ladakh region and other far-flung areas of the state, the Governor discussed various measures which were required to give a greater fillip to the Red Cross activities in the State, particularly in the remote areas, for providing support and succour to the needy.
The Governor also underscored the need for focusing on imparting training in first aid, particularly to the workforce working in industries and other sectors so that they supplement the efforts to provide succour to the needy in case of any calamity.
