Safe drinking water provided to flood affected villagers

Thoubal, June 2: With the objective of preventing possible outbreak of water related diseases, a local club, United Progressive Club, today distributed safe drinking water in localities around Wangjing in Thoubal district that were affected by floods since evening of last Tuesday after the Wangjing river bank developed breaches at multiple locations, primarily at Wangjing Wangkhei.   
In a press statement, the club said the measure was taken up immediately after the recent flood as previous sources of safe drinking water become unusable in most areas in and around Wangjing due to the inundation. Reaching out to the flood affected villagers, UPC has promised that it will continue its engagement in relief activities during this time of distress.  

Pointing out that the situation that emerged in the aftermath of the flood has raised apprehension of many water-related diseases breaking out, the statement called upon the district medical department to give extra emphasis on the needs of the flood affected villages.   
The spots where the breaching of banks occurred were Wangjing Wangkhei, Wangjing River View area Wangjing SK Loukol, Wanging Tekcham Leikai, Heitupokpi amd Wangjing Hodamba.
