Relief journey organised by NEFIS helps Manipur earthquake victims

NEFIS volunteers distributing relief materials to Longmai villagers in Noney affected by the recent earthquake.

Imphal, Jan 18 : The Relief Journey organized by North-East Forum for International Solidarity

(NEFIS) reached Longmai village in Noney and helped the victims of the

earthquake. The Relief Journey commenced on 17th of January, from the Manipur

University, Imphal and proceeded to Noney in Tamenglong district. NEFIS

volunteers had decided to organize this relief journey as the mere sending of relief

materials was not enough.

The earthquake victims needed physical help to ease their pain and loss. NEFIS

volunteers not only distributed relief materials and blankets to the victims, but

were actively involved in the relief work. NEFIS volunteers, who talked to the

villagers, took note of the utter negligence by the Government. The village chief,

with whom the volunteers interacted, told them of the huge shortage of food

supplies and the continuing apathetic attitude of the Manipur Government.
