Pune – The War Wounded Foundation, a registered charitable Non-Government Organisation  (NGO), is organising a Rally for all war disabled personnel of western states at the Dhanwantri Auditorium of Armed Forces Medical College (AFMC) , Pune on 06 May 2017.

The Rally would be held from 10:40 to 12:30 AM on 06 May 2017. It will be followed by an interaction with the war disabled personnel at the same location and would be followed by a Barakhana Lunch at 13:00 PM.

The aim of the Rally is to honour disable personnel of the Armed Forces, who have been disabled in wars and war-like operation, while fighting for the security of the Nation; as also to give visibility to the Foundation and its work.

The Foundation is expecting approximately 150 war disabled personnel, mostly from the Army, to participate in the Rally. In addition, inmates of Artificial Limb Centre (ALC) PuneParaplegic Rehabilitation Centre, Kirkee; and Queen Mary’s Technical Institutes for Disabled Soldiers, Kirkee; would also be honoured.

The War Wounded Foundation was set up in 2002 for the long-term rehabilitation and financial independence of war disabled personnel of the armed forces. There are approximately 10,000 such personnel in India today. All war disabled personnel of the army, navy and air force are automatically members of the War Wounded Foundation; they do not have to pay any fees.

The Foundation gives no doles for freebies but assists the war disabled in acquiring skills; becoming ‘soldier entrepreneurs; and arranging jobs if they so desire.

Details of the Foundation can be accessed at the website: warwounded.org. The focus of the Foundation was and continues to be on rural areas, as the maximum numbers of our JCO’s and Jawans come from a rural back ground.

The last such Rally was held at Chandimandir on 06 June 2016, for the war disabled personnel of the northern states.
