Speaking on the partnership, Air Commodore Ahluwalia, VSM Secretary, KSB said “We are very proud to be associated with this campaign as many brave and gallantry heroes from the Indian Army have laid down their lives in the service of the country. It’s a great time to come together and join our hands for those who never thought for themselves and are always ready for us.” 

“More than 60,000 jawans retire every year as they need to mandatorily retire after service of 15-20 years. Most of them are in the age group of just 35-40 years at the time of retirement. The campaign aims to support and educate the children of retired servicemen, Financial assistance to ex-servicemen in Penury, Support the wedding ceremony of ex-servicemen daughters,” he added.

“Freedom comes at a price and we need to take some time out to reflect on the liberties we enjoy and take for granted; liberties that are enabled only because of our defense forces. Contributing to this campaign will be our way of showing our respect and gratitude to those who keep us free,” Chet Jainn, CEO & Founder Crowdera, said.
