Mokokchung, June 28 (EMN):
Various social organisations, groups, NGOs and individuals have come forward to provide help to Covid-19 related institutions and others in their own capacity affected by the lockdown measures in Mokokchung district.

In such distressing times, the community of Satier sector, under Aliba village in Mokokchung district has also come forward to distribute free meal packages for the essential commodities vehicles and other travelers on NH 702(D) on Monday.

A volunteer when contacted said many essential commodities vehicle drivers and other travelers on the national highways were facing the challenges of the lockdown as many shops and hotels along the highways are closed most of the time. 

He, therefore, said in such distressing times, the community decided to come forward to provide free meals for the drivers and others because ‘without their services people will suffer during the lockdown’.

“We have been distributing free meals since morning and will continue till evening, just with a humble prayer to provide meals as much as we can,” he said.

It may be mentioned that Satier sector, under Aliba village and its adjoining areas have been regarded as productive piggery farming hub in the district.
