Kohima, May 24: The Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) on Sunday extended gift packages for inmates and frontline workers at two quarantine centers of Kohima district located at K. Badze and Meriema.
The two quarantine centers is government facility to house citizens of the State who returned from other parts of the country.
The NBCC gift package, which it coined as ‘Prayer Pack’ consists of a prayer letter from NBCC, its News Letter, Gideon Bible, face mask, basic needs like tooth brush, paste, soap, toilet rolls, chocolates, biscuits, juice, etc.
The team led by NBCC general secretary Rev Dr Zelhou Keyho handed over the packages to the concerned authority at the gate of the quarantine centers while also offering prayer for their good health in the fight against COVID-19.
“At this time, since it is difficult to go and meet everyone in the quarantine centers in Kohima, the NBCC prepared 850 “Prayer pack” for each of our children in the quarantine centers and delivered to them today,” said Rev. Keyho.
He said that as they delivered the packages they prayed with the in-charge and few of the front line workers to acknowledge their service and also thanking them for the sacrifice and hard work.
“We realize the stress and tension they go through handling the incoming returnees every day. We saw the dedication in all of them though physically, mentally, and psychologically they are overwhelmed. Many of us are complaining and giving wise direction without knowing the reality they face each day. They deserve our support in every possible way,” said Rev. Keyho.
Those lodged in the centers are our children, but due to social distancing protocol we could not meet them, he said while asserting “we are with them in our prayer”.
NBCC youth secretary Rev. Vikuo Rhi said that NBCC is also planning to extend similar packages to some quarantine centers in Dimapur as well. (Page News Service)
