India Post delivered medicines to an 8-year-old girl from Una in Himachal Pradesh who has been suffering from Cancer.
Many of her regular medicines are difficult to purchase in Una and she gets these medicines from Delhi by courier.
Shalini’s family contacted one of their friends in Delhi and requested him for help in getting the medicines from Delhi to Una.
Given the constraints of logistics due to lockdown, their family friend requested the union telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad for help.
Recently due to sudden lockdown to prevent the spread of COVID19, Shalini’s stock of medicine was running out and she had medicines that would suffice only till April 19, 2020.
Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, promptly directed India Post to provide all possible logistical assistance for ensuring that the medicines are delivered to Shalini in Una before April 19.
Delhi, Haryana, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh Circles of India Post made a very well-coordinated effort to ensure that the medicines reach on time.
Due to constraints of lockdown, the Punjab Circle of India Post made a special arrangement for a postal motor van, which left Una and directly reached Shalini’s house on April 19 morning.
A postman of India Post reached Shalini’s house before 12 to deliver the medicines.
Shalini’s mother received these medicines at her house and profusely thanked India Post for coming to the rescue of her daughter.
