Imphal: The COVID-19 pandemic has brought out the real meaning of selfless service with people across the globe making unprecedented moves to help each other in this hour of crisis.
In such a noble gesture, Mao civil society organisations in Manipur on Tuesday initiated a goodwill relief mission to the frontline warriors, including doctors, nurses and health workers who are combating the deadly COVID-19 in the state.
The Senapati-based civil society organisations, which consisted of Mao Council, Mao Students’ Union and Mao Naga Women Welfare Association, extended help and distributed fresh home-grown vegetables to COVID-19 warriors of RIMS and JNIMS hospitals in Imphal.
The reach-out mission was an act of showing gratitude to the medical fraternity as the healthcare workers continue to give their best in treating COVID-19 patients while staying away from their loved ones and risking their lives amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
It was also a gesture of showing their satisfaction for successfully treating the two COVID-19 patients in the state and curing them of the deadly virus.
Overwhelmed by the help extended to the valley by the hill people in this dreadful situation, an emotional chief minister N Biren Singh on Wednesday said on his Facebook page that history has repeated and back to its original form to prove that people in the state share the same blood.
A 53-year-old man from Thoubal district, the last COVID-19 patient in the state, was discharged from the hospital after testing negative twice in successive tests on April 21.
With his release, Manipur is now free from the virus. No new case of COVID-19 has been reported as on April 22.
