Governor K Rosaiah launched two new projects of St John Ambulance (India) – ‘Special Children 2013’ and ‘Tribal 2013’ – here on Thursday.

D Vadivel Mugundhan, chairman of St John, said that under one project, doctors trained in first aid and volunteers from his organisation would teach parents and attendants on how to care for special children.

As a trial measure, first aid training had been imparted to 1,450 caretakers and parents of special children in Sivaganga and Villupuram districts.

Launching the two projects, the Governor said the spirit of social service should not only be kept intact, but also be evoked and developed in the young. “St John Ambulance, Indian Red Cross Society and Bharat Scouts and Guides have been making immense contribution to the society in this regard,” he pointed out.

The Governor also distributed ‘Motivational Award’ to various industries for their support.

Justice K Venkataraman, former judge, High Court of Madras, T T Ashok co-chairman, CII-MSME National Council, and Thillai Vallal, senior consultant-cardiologist, were among those present on the occasion.
