Thanking the Umeed Project and Crypto Relief India based in Delhi for contributing the life-saving equipment with coordination of the InSIDE North East, Somorjit stated that the district has been facing a shortage of such life-saving equipment.
“At this juncture we are really in need of such life-saving equipment like oxygen concentrators, oxygen cylinders, and which are related to the life-saving of COVID patients,” he said.
He also acknowledged the contributions of various other NGOs as well but said that the contribution of Umeed Project, Crypto Relief India and InSIDE NE is the biggest so far the district has received in the fight against the pandemic. He further mentioned that the Umeed Project and Crypto Relief India have also approved to provide more equipment including one generator each in the seven health centres of Kangpokpi district.

“We could finally be connected with the Umeed Project and Crypto Relief India to reach out to more than 3,000 families in Manipur, especially the vulnerable families,” he said.
He also thanked Umeed Project and Crypto Relief India for their relentless support and to be part of the COVID warriors by reaching out to people.
