Help The Stranded

A flyer which was published in the Road, in the wake of all-reason-defying economic blockade sometime around 2010

On 17 May 2010 Burning Voices initiated a fund drive to help the victims of artificial famine caused by the Economic Blockade imposed on the National Highways connecting Manipur to the rest of India. We managed to raise Rs. 110,000 which was spent on procuring medicines from New Delhi and sending them to Manipur through air cargo. Our members based in Manipur distributed these medicines to the remote areas of Tengnoupal, Chandel and Tamenglong with the help of various civil organisations in the region. Furthermore, medicines were handed over to Kanglatombi Children Home and Conflict Widows’ Forum .

We would like to thank all the generous contributors who supported us in this endeavour.
