Assam Rifles Organises Picnic for Underprivileged Students and Organises Medical Camp at Molnom Village

IGAR (South)

Imphal Aug 5,

To spread the message of love and to save our rich history by understanding the importance of our architectural designs, Assam Rifles Public School (ARPS), Mantripukhri organised a picnic to Kangla Fort for 26 underprivileged kids from the ARPS, Mantripukhri.    

A unique way to spend the day, the objective of organising a picnic at the Kangla Fort was to teach kids the importance of architectural heritage of our country. So along with fun and food, kids were made aware about the enriching history of the Fort and it’s importance for the capital of Manipur.  

To make the kids understand about the importance of the Fort, this picnic was organised for underprivileged kids so that they see and mix-up with the environment. Children are pure humans and the real change makers. If they are directed towards the right path they can do wonders. Taking them to the Fort was to show them how rich our history actually is and what importance it holds for the population of Manipur.

Kids enjoyed the visit and conveyed gratitude for the efforts of Assam Rifles in organising such visit and requested for more such informative visits in future for benefit and awareness of the students. The picnic cum visit was concluded with lunch for all the students.  

A medical camp was organised at village Molnom of Tengnoupal district, Manipur by Chandel Battalion of 26 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of IGAR (South) on yesterday. The camp was organised on the request of the villagers as there is no medical facility available in the vicinity. A total of 125 villagers including men, women and children attended the camp and were provided with a free health check up and medicines. Villagers from surroundings villages also attended the medical camp. The Assam Rifles Medical Officer carried out preliminary health check up of villagers and referred few villagers for further treatment who have been diagnosed for any ailment.    

The villagers were happy with the medical camp and shown their gratitude towards the Assam Rifles for organising it. Also, villagers have been assured regarding full support from Assam Rifles through such outreach programs and they can approach company operating base of battalion in case medical assistance required during any emergency.
