Eastern Mirror Desk
Dimapur, Sep. 6: Event management company Regalia Entertainment Nagaland (REN) has been selected as the official ambassador to showcase the culture of indigenous Naga people at an international cultural event to be held at Belfast-Northern Ireland, UK, in November 2020.
This was informed by director and founder of REN, Atheli K Zhimo through a statement on Friday, September 6. She said the new mission will provide a platform for Naga performers in the world stage besides promoting the rich cultural heritage and ethnic identity of both the Nagas and the Irish people.
REN is an entertainment production house that organises events like REN model hunt, the warriors Festival and Iliki International Music festival (IIMF). It is one of the biggest fashion societies in Northeast India and has wide network with renowned management companies from across India. It also recently announced its global partnership with several companies from countries like Spain, Germany and Maurice Wylie Ministry- Northern Ireland, a move that will allow artists to perform in each other’s events.
Free eye treatment camp
Earlier during the day on Friday, REN organised a medical camp in Dimapur under “Project Hope” to provide free eye treatment to the senior citizens from old age homes. Over a dozen elderly people received free treatment during the camp, which was organised in collaboration with Advanced Vision Therapy Clinic, Dr. Dennis K Swu and Tribal Old Age Home cum Day Care centre in Indisen village.
Dr. Swu told Eastern Mirror that there are many optical shops run by unofficial opticians in Nagaland. He added that an optical shop needs an official certificate and advised the people to check whether such shops are registered as there are possibilities of shopkeepers selling optical glasses just for business purpose and victimise the patients.
“Project Hope” is said to be the only touring charity project from the Northeast. Funded by REN, the project has 20 goodwill ambassadors and has been supporting child empowerment, cancer patients, education of children from rural areas, orphanages and old age homes, heath and sanitation etc. for some years now.
