Jammu, Dec 9 Dec 7 is celebrated as Flag Day throughout our Country to recognize the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces. On this day our citizens express their solidarity with Armed Forces and express their gratitude to the soldiers by providing donation for Armed Forces Flag Day Fund. Morale of Armed Forces multiples with the active support of the citizens. To increase the interaction between citizens/NGOs and Armed Forces, Sainik Welfare Deptt has chalked out a number of programmes to ensure that our citizens are associated more with Armed Forces, Soldiers and Veer Naris. Towards this end, a programme has been started, wherein citizens/NGOs are encouraged to adopt families of our Battle Causalities. To further integrate our students in this programme, JK Academy of Arts and Culture has conducted a Painting Competition on the theme “Hamare Sainik Hamari Shaan”, on 03 Dec 19, where close to 400 children participated.
