A blood donation camp and free check-up camp will be organized, distribution of artificial limbs and equipment will be organized.
The party will also run a year-long programme to make the country Tuberculosis (TB) free, under which everyone will adopt a TB patient and will take care of him for one year.

Tree plantation drives and several cleanliness campaigns will be included in programmes organised for PM Modi's birthday celebrations.
JP Nadda has instructed all the leaders and workers to upload photos of programmes on the NaMo App. He has also directed to promote programmes related to 'Unity in Diversity and 'Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat' as part of the celebration.
Last year, BJP aimed to make the birthday historic by setting a record of the maximum number of COVID-19 vaccine inoculations on the day.
With over 2.50 crore COVID-19 vaccine doses administered, India created a world record of the highest number of COVID jabs in a day on the occasion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 71st birthday last year. (ANI)
