ANBA executive secretary Reverend Huten Wilson along with staffs met the minister at his residence in Chandel district and handed over the aid and said that they are mobilizing ANBA pastors not to stigmatize the returnees but to pray with them and encourage them through phone calls.

ANBA would also be contributing relief package to few selected areas, including western valley area, Chakpi area and Maha Area in the coming week, it added.

Meanwhile, in Churachandpur, 70 households of Koitelui area received relief goods from Loisei Investment and Finance Private Limited on Tuesday. Five kilograms of rice grain was distributed to each household in view of the food shortage caused by the prolonged lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic.
