In an effort to send across love to the children in Kashmir, students from several schools in the Tricity sent over 2,000 new woolen clothes and jackets for them, along with ‘Thank You’ greeting cards for Army soldiers stationed in the Kashmir valley.

The programme was organised by NGO Yuvsatta, CREST and the Peace club of KB DAV Senior Secondary Public School, with the support of the Tricity schools on the KB DAV-7 School campus.

Principal of KB DAV-7, Pooja Prakash said that the school had collaborated with Yuvsatta in this project to inculcate the concept of ‘love for all and hatred for none’ in the young minds.

Hira Lal Yadav from Mumbai, a youth motivator, who cycles to distant terrians with letters for soldiers, urged students to stand up for the nation’s soldiers.

Chief Guest Debendra Dalai, Chief Conservator of Forests and CEO of CREST, lauded the schools for promoting the cause of national integration. “A country is strong only when its citizens are united, like a family is strong when its members are together.’’
