President of India gives donation to Army Hospital on Vijay Diwas

New Delhi, July 26, 2020: As a tribute to soldiers who fought
valiantly and made the supreme sacrifice in the
Kargil war, the President of India, Ram Nath
Kovind today presented a cheque of Rs 20 lakh to
the Army Hospital (Research and Referral),
Delhi, to buy equipment that will help doctors
and paramedics combat the Covid-19 pandemic
Today is the 21st anniversary of the Kargil war
victory which is celebrated as Vijay Diwas.
The President’s contribution to the Army Hospital
has been made possible due to an exercise to
economise expenditure in the Rashtrapati Bhavan
and thus make more resources available to contain
The President had earlier issued directions to
reduce expenses by initiating a slew of measures
in the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
As a sequel to this initiative, he had earlier
deferred the proposal to buy a limousine which
was to be used for ceremonial occasions.
The contribution from the President to the Army
Hospital will be used to procure units of PAPR
(powered air purifying respirator), which are
state-of-art equipment to enable medical professionals
breathe during surgeries and protect them
from infection.
This will serve the larger cause of patients’ care
and protection to those warriors who are fighting
an invisible enemy.
In his role as the Supreme Commander of the
Armed Forces, the President’s gesture will boost
the morale of the frontline Covid Warriors of the
Army Hospital.
It will go a long way in providing a safe, conducive
environment to them so that they can perform
to the best of their ability.
It is also hoped that the gesture will inspire
other people and organisations to economise
expenditure and utilise the savings to aid and support
our Covid warriors.
