We cannot solely depend upon the government and other organisations throughout the pandemic. Rather, we must also participate for the cause of humanity, the businessman said.

An inspiring gesture from a businessman has motivated Thadou Students' Association, Sadar Hills (TSA-SH) in serving Covid patients and on-duty medical staff, including doctors and nurses at Covid care centre Leikop.

TSA Sadar Hills has been voluntarily taking responsibility for mess catering to any Covid patients admitted at Covid care centre Leikop for a month before extending their mess services later to the on-duty medical staff, including doctors and nurses.

However, since they have been running the mess catering service without seeking any donations, they often face shortages of rice in their stock.

Ganga Sharma, a businessman from Kangpokpi, who is also an alumnus of KT Higher Secondary School Kangpokpi 1997 Class X batch came forward to help them by donating rice, dal, potatoes, oil, water and other requirements at the kitchen of TSA Sadar Hills.

It was not Ganga's donation but his praiseworthy gesture that made everyone motivated.

The businessman while handing over the essentials said that everyone is badly affected in one way or another by the pandemic. When the government is doing its part at its best, the other frontline workers, including health workers and police, and most importantly, the various non-profit organisations are also contributing a lot in the fight against the dreaded COVID-19, he said.

“We cannot solely depend upon the government and other organisations throughout the pandemic. Rather, we must also participate as human beings for the cause of humanity at this juncture for collective efforts and participation is the need of the hour to overcome the pandemic COVID-19,” he added.

He pointed out that the sacrifices made by the frontline workers, health workers, police, and the voluntary organisation are for the safety of the public while their exhaustive days have become “our opportunity to spend quality time with our family and their deaths ensure our life.”

Taking into account all these sacrifices and commitment of the government, frontline workers, health workers, police, and the dedicated non-profit organisations, the people should not remain just mute spectators, but they must not hesitate to step forward to help them in our capacity, he added.

He also said that he will continue promoting the good samaritan acts of TSA Sadar Hills to his friend circles and come forward with bigger assistance and contribution for the Covid patients and the Covid warriors, the doctors, and nurses at Covid care centre Leikop.

Ganga Sharma also encouraged the TSA Sadar Hills volunteers to keep up the good Samaritan work and never make the Covid patients and doctors and nurses sleep hungry while assuring more assistance in his capacity in the future as well.

Ganga Sharma also thanked and appreciated the sacrifice and commitment of one Hechong Hangshing who volunteered to cook for the Covid patients and the doctors and nurses on-duty at Covid care centre Leikop since TSA Sadar Hills started the mess catering service free of cost.

Meanwhile, TSA Sadar Hills and TWA Sadar Hills expressed heartfelt gratitude to Ganga Sharma for his gesture towards humanity and appreciated his noble contributions.
