Chandigarh: 'Farz Manukhta Da' COVID Help Centre issues Helpline numbers for Corona patients
Chandigarh, May 12, 2021: At the time when COVID cases are dramatically increasing, ‘Farz Manukhta Da’, a group formed to help those affected with COVID-19 has release a helpline number of Corona patients.
The helpline works 24x7 to resolve the grievances of the common people through its District level volunteers.
The helpline receives numerous calls from the high profile officers, leaders, media persons, traders, and other sections about the requirement of ventilators, oxygen beds, or some special medicine. The helpline also ensures that the volunteers deliver food to the families of Covid patients.
The Coordinator of the helpline Kanwarbir Singh Ruby Sidhu said that the initiative has begun on May 3 but the ever-increasing Covid cases have contributed to compounding everyday difficulties.
In order to make sure that every facility reaches Covid affected patients, contact numbers 9115127102, 9115158100 have been made operationalized. He further said that the PPCC President Sunil Jakhar has directed that every needy person must be helped without any pa and feedback from the patients is mandatory.
Divulging more, Kanwarbir Ruby said that in case of any emergency, assistance is provided to the people through volunteers by coordinating with the District Administrations besides nodal officers of the Covid care hospital for ventilators and oxygen beds. Every district is extending wholehearted support to them.
With a tinge of emotion, Ruby said that people called them up even after the death of Covid patients to express gratitude for extending help in the hour of need. In many cases, old people encourage the volunteers that they have fulfilled their duties towards them (old people) like their own offspring.
Coordinator Amarpreet Singh Lali revealed that every day offers for extending assistance are being received in large numbers from social welfare, religious organizations, and NGOs which has boosted the morale of the volunteers and expanded their network.
