Rajouri: ESM Rallies are held by the Army to provide intimate contact & to provide on the spot solution to their problems. On these occasions, we also commemorate the valor and bravery of our fallen heroes by felicitation to their families, as a token of gratitude to our Bravehearts. During a ESM Rally held at Rajouri, a NGO, War Wounded Foundation (WWF) presented Modified Scooters to those ESM from Rajouri, who were physically disabled in the Line of duty. During an impressive function held by Indian Army at Rajouri, modified Scooters were presented by GOC, Rajouri Division to Disabled Soldiers, in the presence of ESM and Brig Harcharan Singh, Director North, WWF.
While serving in the army, soldiers are wounded in war or during war-like situations. Hav Hakam Ali and Hav Mukhtar Singh were injured in Manipur during operations against Insurgents. Hav Puran Chand was injured in Kupwara during Counter Insurgency operations.  Soldiers lost their limbs, due to injuries. Many of them are confined to the bed or within the confines of  their house , due to the injuries . There is a requirement to make these soldiers mobile, so that they are not dependent on others .WWF helps injured soldiers with mobility equipment, so that they can carry out  day today functions and develop self confidence. Around 20 Modified scooters have been distributed in J&K to the deserving ESM, who have sustained injuries, while serving in the Army.
As a token of appreciation, Hony Capt Sadiq Mohd, SC and Nk Ikhlakh were felicitated by the GOC, for their initiative for motivating other injured soldiers. Brig Harcharan Singh thanked the Army authorities for conducting the ESM Rally, to help out the ESM of Rajouri . He informed the gathering about welfare schemes of WWF.

There is provision to modify Bathrooms for Disabled Soldiers, to make them comfortable and User Friendly. Also, in case Disabled ESM wants to start a Business, help will be provided, as found fit. From time to time, WWF holds Rallies in all parts of India, to help Disabled Soldiers with an aim to make them psychologically stronger.
