RRC serves food to drug users in Imphal

TMB Report

IMPHAL: With regards to the lockdown of pandemic of Convid-19, a team of Coronavirus warriors led by Ole Wangkheimayum, the Project Director of Realize Rehabilitation Center along with Prem Worship Servicing Center and Salvation Center on Thursday served mid-day’s meal to about 35 drug users at North AOC in the heart of Imphal City, especially to those who are unable to go for treatment as many of them are disowned my family members.

Ole said that from Friday instead of the mid-day meal, the three bodies have planned to switch to breakfast as many drugs users often loiter around the joints especially from the wee hours of midnight till early morning and thereafter till late night overpassing rules of lockdown & even without the fear of witnessing the law enforcement agencies.

This is serious problem, Ole stated.

The Project Director said that addiction is a disease that needs proper treatment and therefore appealed to the govt to provide treatment or at least provide detoxification under a protected environment free of cost to these drugs users during this critical juncture.
