Donate to fight COVID 19 . . . . . .

Comrades ,

Kudos to the spirit of all our senior citizens represented by our Association across India who have generously donated to PMCARES/CMRF in response to our CHQ’s  call  to join the fight against COVID-19. These donations crossed Rs 34 lakhs as on 11-04-2020 within two week’s time in spite of Country wide lock-down for 19 days.  CHQ’s call is to donate one days’ pension to relief fund designated for COVID-19.

144 of our members in Andhra have responded with as much as Rs 3.36 lakhs of donations so far. Some of our members may not be conversant with various digital modes of making financial transactions which is the only available option during this period.    

The much awaited respite is not in sight as the number of COVID affected  cases are increasing and the lock-down restrictions are likely to be extended for two more weeks. Members who can donate online can do it now. We cannot move out and should follow all the guidelines of lock down. Those who are aware of online modes should guide others to make our call more helpful to the people under distress.

District Secretaries are requested to continue their efforts to convey the appeal to all our members immediately to speed up the process of contributions by all ways and means. Let’s all work from home.

Yours fraternally

12-04-2020                                           Circle Secretary
