Manipur Rising, an inspiring initiative, made its presence felt at Sunday Soul Sante, India's largest flea market hosted in Hyderabad, leaving attendees captivated by the resilience and determination of the people of Manipur.
This campaign is a beacon of hope for those who have faced adversity in the region, especially the Internally Displaced People (IDPs) striving for self-reliance.
Products crafted by 300 inmates from Mekola Relief Camp, Moirang, Lamkhai, Phayeng, Chingmeirong, Ideal College and Lamboi Khongngang Khong Relief Camps were showcased.
The prolonged humanitarian crisis in Manipur has taken a heavy toll on businesses, with a significant decline of 60 to 70 per cent.
‘Manipur Rising’ is on a mission to support those living in relief camps, helping them rebuild their lives from scratch.
The items available for purchase at their booth are skilfully crafted by IDPs who are striving to earn a livelihood and regain self-reliance.
This renowned event is celebrated for its vibrant showcase of contemporary arts, crafts, and unique handmade products designed by talented artists and designers.
Shoppers can explore a wide range of offerings, from clothing and accessories to jewellery and home decor, making it a treasure trove for the creative and the curious.
What sets ‘Manipur Rising’ apart at Sunday Soul Sante is its unwavering commitment to support the IDPs from Manipur.
Purchases made at their booth directly contribute to the livelihoods and self-reliance of these individuals, shining a ray of hope and facilitating positive change in Manipur.
Sunday Soul Sante, in its journey since 2010, has evolved into a vibrant platform for art, culture, and creativity.
It continues to attract diverse crowds of art enthusiasts and families alike. The Hyderabad edition of the event promises an extraordinary experience, featuring renowned brands, delectable food options, and live performances by top artists and bands like Masala Coffee, Kenishaa Franncis, and Best Kept Secret.
Manipur Rising and Sunday Soul Sante Hyderabad offer a unique opportunity to celebrate the festive season while actively contributing to the lives of those in Manipur.
