Hey people,

No matter where you are, I am sure you can do something to help the
families of those who died for our nation!

Even a simple gesture, a message, a note of respect and solidarity, a
dime that conveys a message that you know of their supreme sacrifice and

you care, helps!

Thank You.

their lives in the recent action in Kargil sector. Thanks to all our
contributors of this fund that enable us to deliver the much needed
assistance in a timely fashion. Our India Office is very actively
collecting addresses of families of Jawans to convey our condolences and

support. The INF has already released Rs. 2 Lakhs to our India Office
helping the families to meet their immediate needs. Attached is a news
clipping received from our India office. We are in the process of
distributing immediate assistance to more families this week.
