Take initiatives to rehabilitate orphans: Guv
Srinagar, Aug 1: Governor, N N Vohra has emphasized the need for taking all required initiatives for the rehabilitation of orphans and children in any kind of distress to enable them to grow into balanced and productive members of the society.
The Governor was speaking after inaugurating a Photo Exhibition “Moments: A Chronicle of Childhood”, organized by the Child Nurture and Relief (CHINAR) Kashmir here last evening.
The CHINAR Kashmir is working for the psychological rehabilitation of orphans and vulnerable children in Kashmir and running a CHINAR Home for a group of orphaned boys and girls in Srinagar.
Vohra observed that the State had suffered immensely during the past years with huge loss of life and property and rendering a large number of women as widow and many children as orphans.
While lauding the noble initiative taken by CHINAR Kashmir for psycho-social rehabilitation of such children, he hoped that there would now be sustained peace and normalcy in the State. He added that all of us need to give serious thought to the circumstances which engender situations leading to the need for taking initiatives to look after children who become orphans in such extremely unfortunate circumstances as witnessed in Kashmir in the past years. He hoped that many affluent people and organizations would come forward to give a helping hand to such children and to the laudable organizations which support such children.
The Governor announced a support of Rs one lakh for CHINAR Kashmir and presented awards to half a dozen CHINAR children for their laudable achievements.
The Governor was honored on the occasion by presenting a memento to him by the management of the CHINAR Kashmir.
Child Nurture and Relief Kashmir, president, Nazir A Qureshi, gave details of the present activities of his organization and its future action plan.
Dr. Fozia Qazi made a power point presentation on the various aspects of the functioning of the CHINAR Kashmir.
The photographs displayed at the Exhibition had been taken by the CHINAR children during a month-long workshop organized to impart photography skills to them. The Governor went around the Photo Exhibition and lauded the visibly high potential of the young children.
