Five different organisations of Churachandpur district, namely the Centre for Community Initiative, Project Exodus Aid, Lamka Artcon and NEST on Wednesday started a two-day ‘Winter Hope Market 2023’ at Rayburn High School, New Lamka with the theme ‘Come help spread the Warmth!’
The winter hope market was made in honour of the resolute spirit of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), who are taking shelter in different places in Churachandpur district by celebrating their remarkable talents in the arts and craft and their chosen field for sustenance.
The event aims to foster the spirit of self reliance to the displaced persons by providing them a platform to market their creations so as to find a way for them to stand on their feet after facing the trauma of being displaced from their homes and also to offer them the blessings of being able to earn their basic needs, tells one of the organisers.
There are more than 15 stalls in the Winter Hope Market, 2023 which sell various arts and craft products of the IDPs, including hand woven cloth and cane products, eatables like vegetables, cooked food and meats, dish wash etc. which are on display.
