In its venture to enlighten young minds, the 173 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on Tuesday distributed library books to Wondang-Ki Charitable Foundation, Fellowship Colony, Dimapur on Tuesday under its civic action scheme.
The books were distributed to the children by M. Patton, IAS commissioner of taxes and excise, government of Nagaland at a programme held at CRPF headquarter, 173 Bn, Dimapur. Speaking as chief guest, M. Patton said with the change of time and people’s attitude, today civilians could interact freely with the men in uniform and urged people to change their approach towards the uniformed men.
He expressed that socially one could not live at ease if society ignored one section of people stating that orphans need to be taken care of. He asserted that today many hard core criminals were from the orphans’ background with no formal education and family to care them and that somebody in society needed to take care of the orphans. Patton lauded N.T Kikon, managing director, Wondang-Ki Charitable Foundation and family for the noble job in taking care of the children who have no means to survive themselves and the 173 CPRF for their contribution and noble venture towards the less privileged children.
CRPF 173 Bn, Dimapur commanding officer, Anupam Sharma said uniform did not disassociate with society and that they were part of society in serving the people. He also said children of the orphanage home were not orphans but their own kids and expressed honor to serve the kids.
Managing director, Wondang-Ki Charitable Foundation, N.T Kikon appreciated the decision of every CRPF to provide better life to the children in days to come. He said in this short span of lifetime, with few resources, one should contribute to people who could not stand at their own feet. He also expressed the desire of the home to have a library for the children and stated that the home was fortunate that the CRPF had come up with their own imitative to fulfill the children’s needs. He expressed hope that the support of CRPF would bring positive changes in society.
