Mon district receives customised ambulance
Dimapur, Oct. 3 (EMN): Mon district became the first to receive a customised 4×4 ambulance from ‘Medical Oxygen For All’ (Mofa) on October 1.
According to a DIPR report, ‘Medical Oxygen For All’ is a team of Indians from across the world with a belief that each one could make a difference. Their focus is on sourcing medical grade oxygen cylinders, canisters, concentrators and generators from across the world and providing them to districts/ cities which are beyond the spotlight of the mainstream media.
A dedicatory programme was held in the conference room of the deputy commissioner’s office in Mon town in the presence of team members Dhruv Sogani and Deeksha Gautam, administrative officers, SP Mon, officials from Health and Family Welfare, representatives from KBBB, KU, KNSK and KSU. It stated that members of the team from across the globe joined in the programme through video conferencing.
Chairing the programme, the deputy commissioner of Mon, Thavaseelan K expressed gratitude to the team for their kind gesture. He was optimistic that the ambulance would greatly enhance the healthcare delivery service in the district, especially the hard to reach villages. He assured the team that their gesture would benefit the people.
The Mon superintendent of police, Imnalensa, has termed it ‘truly remarkable’ to witness initiative of the youth of the country from across the world in helping a remote district in the Northeast.
The joint director of Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Mereninla Senlem, thanked the NGO and DC Mon for the remarkable initiative and appealed to all to take equal ownership in its maintenance.
Meanwhile, team member Dhruv Sogani highlighted that the team was registered as an NGO on April 27, 2021, and has been taking similar initiatives across the country through crowdfunding from across the globe.
He informed that the NGO started primarily with an aim to provide oxygen cylinders and concentrators. However, with the situation getting better, he stated that the team is now focusing on providing other healthcare facilities to the remote districts.
He stated that during the 2nd wave, Mon, Noklak, Tuensang and Kiphire were among the districts which received oxygen concentrators from the NGO. He expressed hope that the ambulance is put to good use and that the relationship between the two continues to grow to do more for the people.
