FOOD BANK FOR THE POOR SANGOLDA GOA is pleased to announce that the 2nd consignment of 13 tonnes of dry ration and grocery items has finally reached Kangpokpi from Assam after almost 7 days.
We had paid for this stock in advance to ensure its timely arrival.
Attached are pictures and a video showcasing the delivery.👇
We are grateful to the FMCK Congregation (St Clare Province) for their substantial contribution to this consignment.
They paid the supplier directly in Assam, further supporting our efforts.
However, logistical challenges persist as the Kohima-Dimapur highway remains closed due to mudslides.
Despite these obstacles, yesterday, we successfully offloaded the following:
☆ 100 bags rice
☆ 17 bags dhal
☆ 9 bags potato
☆ 9 bags onion
total quantity of 6410 kgs at the following address in Kangpokpi with the help of our two staff members stationed there :
Fr. Roy M D
Congregation: Missionaries of St. FRANCIS DE SALES (MSFS)
Parish: St. Francis De Sales Parish
Kangpokpi P O
The remaining balance of 6590 kgs, comprised of
☆ 100 bags of rice,
☆ 20 bags of dhal,
☆ 9 bags of onions,
☆ 9 bags of potatoes,
is en route to the Churachandpur district.
This leg of transportation is currently proving to be the most challenging.
On Monday, our staff, together with the Kangpokpi Relief Committee members, will distribute the 3rd consignment of 4050 kgs, which we uploaded yesterday on social media.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, our staff will work with Fr. Roy and the local parishioners to distribute this ration of 6410 kgs to those in need.
To ensure transparency and avoid duplicity, we employed local Manipuri staff who are responsible for recording data on beneficiaries, including their names, addresses, and specific needs.
This information is then sent to our Goa office for random checking.
On Thursday, our staff will distribute the remaining ration consisting of 6590 kgs in the Churachandpur district, as it is expected to reach the destination by that time.
Our Manipuri staff are told to list down the names & addresses of the poorest of the poor families :
》 1. Whose homes are totally destroyed
》2. As well as children who need help to go to school, for books, uniforms, fees, etc.
》3. Or those who are sick and require medicines
This data will be compiled during distribution.
In addition to providing dry ration, we also have two huge consignments of medicines on the way to both the Kangpokpi and Churachandpur districts.
We express our gratitude to all the generous benefactors who have already donated, are currently donating, and will continue to donate towards our Manipur relief appeal.
Your support is crucial, and we want you to know exactly where your donations are going.
That's why we take the time to write these detailed messages and provide updates.
To all the generous benefactors who donated, are donating and will be donating towards our MANIPUR relief appeal, our transparency can't get better than this.
You need to know where your donations are going and that's why we take time to write these long messages in detail.
We are happy to share a little good news that a few schools have reopened in the hills area, and we believe our prayers are being answered.
We need to BELIVE that PEACE is fully RESTORED in MANIPUR.
However, there is still much more to be done in Manipur beyond providing dry ration and medicines.
As promised two weeks ago, we will continue to upload pictures and videos of the relief work.
Your continous support , prayers , wishes , forwarding our messages and donations are what we are asking of you , reading this post.
And in the coming week, you can expect to see the countryside of Manipur as we distribute supplies to the people.
We would like to acknowledge our collaboration with the Archdiocese of Imphal and the District administration, who are instrumental in our relief efforts.
The relief we send to Manipur is distributed to both the Diocesan Social Services Society (DSSS), a part of the Archdiocese of Imphal, and the District administration running the relief camps.
We urge you to join us in daring to dream and making a positive impact as WE DARE TO DREAM.
