Sameer Shukla, Deputy Commissioner, while lauding the Ballari branch of the Family Planning Association of India (FPAI) for its initiative towards protecting the health of women, appealed to non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to extend their cooperation to ensure that the government’s welfare programme for women reached the needy.

He was speaking at a function organised by FPAI to inaugurate the newly-constructed annexure building, a new laboratory and ultrasound scanning equipment on the branch premises here on Sunday. Mr. Shukla said that with the help of NGOs, the benefits of several welfare schemes for women announced by the government, could reach the needy. Deepak Matti, Director (Operations) Congnisant Foundation, Bengaluru, which donated the ultrasound scanning machine, said this was the first time his organisation had extended help for the cause of protecting the health of women. Umesh Aradhya, national president of FPAI, thanked the donors for their philanthropic gesture. Narasimhamurthy, branch manager, welcomed the gathering. Ms. Vijayalakshmi proposed a vote of thanks.
