Team Namaste, a budding talent hunt group of Silchar on 17th July 2020 organized a mass distribution of Masks and other Sanitary products to the unprivileged people dwelling at Silchar Railway Station, Big Bazaar, Ashram Road, Malini Beel and other important roadsides of the town. The motto of the distribution was SURAKSHA, an initiative to help the needy in having an upper hand against the vicious COVID-19 disease.
The team distributed masks and sanitary products to around 150 underprivileged men, women and children. The president of Namaste, Bikash Das revealed that mask distribution wasn’t their initial plan they thought of more noble work of feeding home-cooked food to the poor and unprivileged people of the town. But based on the current exponential growth of the virus in the town they withdrew this plan and rather came up with the idea of distributing masks and sanitizers that will work as a shield against the COVID-19 disease.
The recent report by the WHO claiming that the COVID-19 is an airborne disease, the concept of distributing masks and sanitizers to the poor is a matter of utmost priority now and Team Namaste duly executed their noble work. The members who were present in distributing masks and sanitizers were Bikash Das, the president along with Poulomita, Payal, Anusuwa, Rajkishor and Debajit.
