Armed Forces Flag Day Fund (AFFDF)
Armed Forces FLAG DAY is celebrated on December 7th evey year, to tradition to commemorate as an honour to the soldiers, sailors and airmen of India. India has been observing December 7 as the Armed Forces Flag Day since 1949 and Government had constituted the Armed Forces Flag Day Fund (AFFDF) for the welfare and rehabilitation of the 32 lakh ex-servicemen community.

The Flag day is mainly observed to serve three basic purposes

▶️Rehabilitation of battle casualties
▶️Welfare of serving personnel and their families
▶️Resettlement and welfare of ex-servicemen and their families.

The basic idea is to raise funds and honor the surviving soldiers and the families of martyrs who have died defending the nation.

Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh announced that ‘Armed Forces Flag Day’ would be celebrated throughout December as “Gaurav Maah” (pride month) to honour the contributions of the armed forces and their veterans to the nation. Raksha Mantri appealed to people to contribute to a fund for the rehabilitation and welfare of next of kin of the soldiers who laid their lives in the line of duty, or were rendered disabled.

The Kendriya Sainik Board is the apex body of the government that formulates policies for rehabilitation and welfare of ex-servicemen and their dependents. For online donations Kindly visit the link mentioned below.
