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.
