Desuups welcome new regional office in Mongar

Desuups of Mongar and Lhuentse expressed their profound joy and gratitude to His Majesty The King for opening a new regional office for the DeSuung in Mongar which would help them impart basic knowledge and skills in various fields such as disaster rescue and relief operations, environment and development, survival skills, leadership and personal development.
On December 9, His Royal Highness the Gyaltshab Jigme Dorji Wangchuk graced the opening of a regional DeSuung office in Mongar to commemorate the 10th year reign of His Majesty The King. There are more than 40 Desuups in Mongar and Lhuentse working in different organizations.
Tshering Phuntsho, Desuup and a teacher at Samtengang Central School said, “The unity I have felt since I joined the Desuup is so overwhelming. I am no longer a single element, but I am a part of something much larger and stronger than myself. The will to serve and the pride we have in our country keeps us together in a bond so strong. It is an honor to be a part of this team where brave men and women now stand for their country.”
“During the earthquake in 2015, Desuups from the east didn’t get a chance to go for rescue. The rescue team comprised mostly of Desuups from other parts of Bhutan and I felt disappointed because I was looking forward to it,” he said. “In addition to this, during the time of casualty, there was lack of medical aid for the Desuups in east, so I felt that there was a need to open a regional office in the eastern region.”
Sonam Cheten Desuup from Mongar said with the new office, desuups can communicate easily and also receive information on time, particularly during disasters. “Now it’s time for us, the Desuups to take our own responsibilities and fulfill the dreams of our supreme commander. We as a Desuup will never let down our supreme commander,” she said.
His Royal Highness the Gyaltshab also graced the opening of a guesthouse for the armed forces society. The guesthouse would benefit the armed force personnel when they visit the Mongar Regional Referral Hospital.
