Artists from Nagaland spread love through ‘It’s AARTH’
Dimapur, May 31 (EMN): As the state battles the second wave of Covid-19, many individuals and organisations have come forward to help those in need.
A group of visual artists from across the state too are doing their bit to ‘spread love and make a difference’ during this hard time through their initiative called “It’s AARTH”
The co-ordinator of the initiative told Eastern Mirror that they started a fundraise campaign with an aim to help the needy people and were able to provide rations, cash and medicines to more than 20 families in Dimapur using contribution and donations from visual artists.
He informed that the initiative was started last year after deliberating on the idea if the artists from the state too could contribute to the society.
Our intention is not for publicity but to create and awareness, and help those in dire need, the poorest of the poor, he informed.
‘It is not much but we just wanted to do our part,’ he said, adding that their initiative to help the poor would continue and expect more artists to join the initiative in the coming days.
‘I would also like to thank all the artists who contributed towards the cause; it is our small initiative of giving back to society,’ he said.
The co-ordinator also expressed his gratitude to the Act of Kindness Society and the Neighbourhood Ministry for their selfless services, helping them reach out and distribute to those families and individuals in dire need.
He said that they were glad to hear about the genuine prayers received through extending their helping hands. ‘We are glad we could be of help and provide them even if it was for a small meal or a course of medication,’ he added.
He further appealed to all, who are in the position to help, to come forward and assist in any capacity ‘as there are still thousands out there in our state itself who are in desperate need and fighting for their survival, not just during this pandemic but in their everyday life too’.
