Fazilka/Ropar: The district administration has flagged off six vans in a bid to make residents aware of preventive measures against Covid-19 in the border belt under "Mission Fateh". DC Arvind Pal Singh Sandhu launched the drive from the district administrative complex here on Sunday. He said the vans would reach out to villagers even in the remote villages across the Sutlej. Similarly in Ropar, the administration honoured Covid warriors of the district under "Mission Fateh". DC Sonali Giri flagged off publicity vans.

Lending a helping hand

Hoshiarpur: An NGO, run by a Mauritius-based NRI, helped an octogenarian stuck at Sanawa village in SBS Nagar, return to the UK. Harbans Kaur (84) had come from Nottingham, UK, in February and was supposed to return in the last week of March, but couldn't because of the lockdown. Her son Navtej Singh Hundal contacted Hoshiarpur-based NRI Dr Sunil Chadda, who runs an NGO named Shah Ji Foundation. He contacted the British High Commission in India and completed the documentation on behalf of Harbans Kaur. She finally boarded the flight arranged by the British High Commission from Amritsar recently. A vehicle was arranged by the NGO in which two more British nationals were sent to the Amritsar airport.

Noble cause

Barnala: On the occasion of World Blood Donor Day on Sunday, Deputy Commissioner Tej Partap Singh Phoolka donated blood at the local civil hospital. Civil Surgeon Dr Gurinderbir Singh also joined him. Phoolka said, "The aim is to motivate others to come forward for this noble cause. Since Covid-19 pandemic is rising despite our best efforts, we must donate blood to meet emergency situations." The DC urged the youth to donate blood and maintain social distancing to prevent the Covid spread.
