EHA Disaster Relief Aids Manipur Victims

Recent ethnic unrest and violence in the Indian state of Manipur has affected thousands of people. Many lives were lost, hundreds were injured, and thousands are homeless and taking shelter in camps or cities. EHA’s Disaster Team has swiftly stepped in to help with immediate needs like food, shelter, and medical care.

Over 1,000 people have received treatment and medicines at EHA’s medical camps. The Disaster Team is also training local leaders in relief management and teaching local nurses how to perform health surveillance. In addition, EHA donated $3,300 worth of medicine and medical equipment to the local Sielmat Christian Hospital to help care for injured people.

So far, the Disaster Team has also distributed 13,000 pounds of rice, 3,400 pounds of lentils, 5,700 pounds of potatoes, and much more. At least 3,400 people have benefited from this food, and 2,000 have also received health and hygiene kits. EHA hopes to help 10,000 people in the coming months, which will cost $150,000.
