Agartala: Winters can be one of the most difficult times of the year for poor people across the country, especially in the rural region. Realising this, two non-government organisations (NGO), Intrepidus Leones Tripura (ILT) and the Nobel Hearts stands have joined hands to distribute blankets.

A group of young bikers from ILT and Nobel Hearts travelled to the far-flung villages in Lailak Para, under Killa police station in Gomati district, located about 90 km from Agartala.

Speaking with EastMojo, Anijit Saha, chief of ILT motorcycling club, said, “In the evening when we all sit near heaters, we feel good. Winter is an amazing season, and we celebrate the warmth with families, but unfortunately, there are a lot of people who cannot afford that warmth. As a little contribution towards society, we have decided to help the people in the remote areas”, Saha said.

Debasish Pal, chief of Nobel Hearts, said they have been doing these kinds of events in remote areas for many years. “Our actual motive is to reach the remote areas and help the needy who actually need relief from people living in the city,” Pal said.

The NGOs distributed blankets to 50 families living in two clusters of Lailak Para village in Gomati district.

Expressing gratitude towards the NGOs, a local said such initiatives from the NGOs helped many needy people like them across the state, and praised their efforts for helping them at the time of need.
