The displaced victims are mainly from Serou, Sugunu, Tangjeng Khunjao and Napat; they have been taking shelter at the camps since May 30.
Taking part at the distribution event, Konjemgbam Shama, a core member of MHWF, stated that the foundation had earlier distributed edible items and reading materials for the displaced victims and students. As a continuation of the distribution, blankets and edible items were distributed, he said and appealed to both the centre and state to bring solutions to the ongoing conflict at the earliest and let the displaced victims return to their homes.
One woman victim from Serou, Memi, extended gratitude to the Metei Heritage Welfare Foundation for the help and also recollected the horrible attack by Kuki militants that happened on May 28. She wants to return to her home, she said.
