Her Excellency Lyonpo Dechen Wangmo graced the Opening Ceremony of the 39th Batch De-suung Integrated Training Program at Drukgyel Central School this morning.

Speaking to the recruits, Lyonpo applauded their spirit of volunteerism and expressed her deepest appreciation to the Dee-sups who are currently assisting the government in implementing various interventions related to COVID-19 across the country. Lyonpo specially extended her gratitude to Dee-sups who are serving in high risk areas which are the Points of Entry and quarantine facilities.

Her Excellency outlined that Dee-sups or Dee-sung has become synonymous to the good culture of volunteerism and that the program, in essence, displays the spirit of compassion, selflessness and empathy that every Bhutanese yearns to possess.

In these arduous times, Lyonpo emphasized on the importance of fulfilling His Majesty’s aspiration of showing solidarity and capitalizing on the strength that originates from our smallness and collective love for our motherland.
