Samarthanam’s comprehensive help and awareness campaign applauded by the government
Smarthanam Trust for the Disabled has been honoured with Rajyotsava Covid Warriors award by Belagavi district administration. Veeresh Kivadasannavar, director of Samarthanam, who did ground level work of providing help to the needy, received the award today (Nov 1, 2020) at Rajyostava function in Belagavi. District in-charge and Water Resources Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi was the chief guest.
Hailed as silent warrior, Veeresh, who is also director of Samruddhi Service Society, Belagavi,
supplied food packets, dry rations, medicines, PPEs and thousands of liters of sanitizers in Belagavi city and rural areas along with BJP and RSS members.
“We began this movement despite health risks of pandemic because the differently abled need help and authorities cannot reach everyone. The campaign is about awareness and as well as material help to all sections of society. These awards strengthen our resolve to enlarge the scope of our efforts,” said Mahantesh GK, chairman of Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled.
Veeresh Kivadasannavar said that “we could do much as we have database of differently abled in the district and we keep in touch with them. Our Covid help campaign went beyond the differently abled. We have given materials and all kinds of help to doctors, police staff and ASHA workers. This is an ongoing work, and these awards will pump energy into our campaign.”
