The Indigenous Women and Children Foundation (IWCF) Tamenglong with support from Henry Martyn Institute, Hyderabad (HMI) distributed relief materials to 200 household identified families as a humanitarian measure to the victims of COVID-19 pandemic.

“This pandemic has affected all sections of our community across the globe but the most affected are those sections of people who have no regular source of livelihood to sustain and depend on daily income. The worst sufferers are the unprivileged women and children,” said program in-charge Rakhuanlung RD.
