Lakhimpur, Oct 8: The Deputy Commisioner of North Lakhimpur, Debeswar Malakar iugurated Sag, a home for the homeless people in North Lakhimpur district.

Udhab Kumar Bharali, a prominent innovator who won awards for innovation, has taken responsibility of the home. Vhabada Devi Memorial Trust would be running the home for homeless people.

Many prominent people were present in the iuguration of Sag.

District Development Officer of North Lakhimpur, Atul Baruah took up the responsibility of the home as president, Dr. Minoti Borthakur, Dipali Baruah and Paras Chaudhury took up responsibility as fincial advisors of the trust. Additiol Deputy Commissioner (ADC) of Lakhimpur, Rashmi Rekha Sarmah was also present in the programme.

“There are many homeless people in North Lakhimpur who live in the streets without a proper meal for their survival. These homeless people are bound to live in an unhygienic environment which causes diseases and as a result they die as there is no one to take care and provide medical assistance. Vhabada Devi Memorial Trust has done something which a society can never repay as they have come up with the initiative to provide shelter, food and other facilities to the homeless people. The poor homeless people will now have a home to live in. The district administration supports the initiative of Vhabada Devi Memorial Trust and we promise to provide any help for this good cause in future,” said Deputy Commissioner Debeswar Malakar.

“It is a very good initiative that the Vhabada Devi Memorial Trust has come up with and this will solve the problems of the homeless people in future. Homeless childern will be saved from involvement in any kind of illegal activity in future,” said a social activist. Anil Bora doted the land, building and property for Sag and many others helped in setting up the home in their own way.
