Border Trade and Chamber of Commerce (BTCC) and Tamil Sangam Moreh donated five D-Type Oxygen Cylinders to Sub District Hospital Moreh on Wednesday.

President of Tamil Sangam Moreh, V Shekhar distributed the oxygen cylinders to MO in-charge SDH-Moreh  Dr Manoranjan in the presence of leaders of BTCC, Tamil Sangam, MCM and other medical staff.

Speaking to the media at Moreh Hospital, V Shekhar said that it is not easy to get the required oxygen in Moreh in case of emergency as the town is located at the remote Indo-Myanmar border and far from the state capital.

“So, we procured the oxygen cylinders from Myanmar and donated them to Moreh hospital for use if and when required,” he said.

V Shekhar, who is also the president of BTCC, further asserted that the major general of Sagaing Region, Myanmar is ready to extend any possible help to Manipur in the fight against the deadly second wave of the Pandemic. The major general had sent a message for Manipur chief minister wherein he expressed that he is ready to extend any possible help to Manipur government, V Shekhar continued, adding that he had already conveyed the message to the chief minister.

Dr Manoranjan conveyed his appreciation for the initiative taken up by Tamil Sangam and BTCC.

Expressing gratitude to BTCC and Tamil Sangam Moreh, president of Meetei Council Moreh  M Thoiba said, “Moreh being 110km away from the capital city, the oxygen cylinders can be used in different cases when in need.”

MLA of Tamenglong assembly constituency D Korungthang also expressed his thanks to BTCC for the initiative taken up. “Moreh being a mini India cosmopolitan town, the people of the town should work together to fight against this deadly disease,” he added.
