Members of MAGMT bond with other families of martyrs with the aim to share, care and support one another. Travelling to different parts of India, we have met with families of braveheart soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice for the nation. This includes families of soldiers in Indian Armed Forces and CAPF. These meetings make grieving families feel they are not alone and also needy families have be supported through linkages with kind individuals and organisations. Along with visiting families of martyrs, MAGMT is happy to have made monetary contributions to Veer Nari’s, parents & children of martyred soldiers for health needs, medical treatment, home repair and marriage of daughters.
Gifting all weather school bags to children of martyred soldiers studying in residential school in Ladakh was very satisfying. Many children slept hugging their bags. Their smiles of joy made the effort of procuring excellent quality bags from Pinball Store, and arranging their transportation worthwhile. Thank you to all who helped make this happen.
Taking the initiative followed by sustained efforts by MAGMT ensured that the family of braveheart Sepoy A Muniappan who was martyred in 1996, was given a BDA housing site in Nadapraprabhu Kempegowda layout by Hon CM of Karnataka. As his widow Veer Nari M Devi is terminally ill with cancer, the site has been registered in the names of their children Vanitha and Vinod. We thank Shri Rajeev Chandrashekar MP and Shri Madhusudan Reddy from CMs office for their support to this very important entitlement being given after a delay of 24 years.
For access to online classes, daughter of braveheart Naik KK Thimaiah and Smt CT Asha was given a HP laptop. Naik Thimmaiah was martyred fighting in 2007. Deeya is studying in class 9 and this was an urgent need. She is very happy because she can attend classes from home in the Corona pandemic.
Contributing to causes
To help protect Corona Warriors from risk of Covid 19, MAGMT donated washable masks and reusable face shields to policemen on duty in Bengaluru airport, Chikkajala police station and K R Puram police station. In the city’s main Kempegowda Bus Station, bus drivers, conductors and healthcare workers (ASHA) who screened and transported migrant workers from Bengaluru to their home districts were provoded with face shields and masks. This was done in coordination with help of volunteers from the Covid War Room.
Major Akshay Girish Memorial Trust made donations to support Portraits of Patriots, an initiative by Delhi based artist Hutansh Verma. The artist honours soldiers for their supreme sacrifice by painting their portraits and delivering to their families across India.
