Helping Hands, an NGO founded by IPS officer Robin Hibu, will now transport the mortal remains of underprivileged Northeastern citizens from different cities across India to their home states.
The initiative, Akhri Ahuti, will carry mortal remains of deceased people from the Northeast engaged in private unorganised sectors or were doing jobs such as maids, guards and sales girls/boys. This also includes students with a poor economic background or those who were struggling for jobs in metro cities.
This initiative comes after the NGO received daily requests for transportation of mortal remains back to the Northeast for burials and cremation.
The NGO can be contacted For availing the transportation of mortal remains and for burial or cremation at:
WhatsApp: 9810083486 or mailing them the request at firstname.lastname@example.org
The NGO has also initiated a North East Last Journey Fund for meeting the expenses for burial, cremation and coffin expenses. In this regard, a committee consisting of one representative from each Northeast state will decide whom to sponsor and will assist in bringing back the mortal remains from cities across India to the deceased person’s home state.
