Imphal May 20,
Moreh Battalion of 26 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of IGAR South constructed a Toilet Block for children of J J Children Home, Moreh under Assam Rifles Civic Action Programme. The toilet block was inaugurated by Town Commander Moreh on Sunday. The inauguration ceremony was attended by the children, the caretakers of the children’s home and the representatives of Assam Rifles.
Moreh Battalion of Assam Rifles has been making continuous efforts to address the grievances and ensure a better and dignified living standard of children at the orphanage. A number of initiatives have been taken by the Battalion to include free medical camps, provision of basic amenities, creation of sports infrastructure and provision of sports equipment.
The care takers of the orphanage conveyed their heartfelt gratitude to the Assam Rifles for the noble gesture as the non availability of toilet block for such large strength of 35 children was affecting the basic hygiene and sanitation of the complex. The Assam Rifles representatives also assured their continuous support for the well being of the children. In addition the proposal for construction of a separate toilet block for girl children has already been approved and will be completed expeditiously by July end. Supplementing the effort of civil administration and bringing prosperity for a meaningful life for the residents of border area has been the focus of the border guarding force.
