9 Aug 2019: The NSS Unit of Don Bosco College, Golaghat, organized a fund raising at the college campus to provide relief to the school children affected by the flood.

Ms. Sushmita Bora Rongpipi identified two schools, Rongali Huti Mazdoor L P School and Jugonia Deuliya Prathonik L P School.  These schools are in the village Jugonia Ati which is located on the banks of  Dhansiri river in the Bokhaghat area. These schools belong to the  Western Education Block of Golaghat District.

At Rongali Huti Mazdoor LP School, around 150 students were present. Shri Tarun Bora, Headmaster along with the staff invited the public leaders and social workers of the area to witness the program. Mr. Joyanta Bora, one of the social worker was also present.

The school children presented an Assamese Prayer son ‘Diha Naam’ and also performed a short cultural program to welcome the visitors. Ms. Sushmita Bora Rongpipi, NCC Program officer of the college, spoke about the concern Don Bosco College and the NSS Volunteers had for those affected by the ongoing flood situation.

After this, students were given out relief items in the form of sanitary items and food items to the children. As the second school was only still partially open, the relief materials were handed over to the school authorities for distribution.

The NSS volunteers visited the schools and saw the flood affected area. As the flood level reached above the window level of the schools and houses, many of the buildings sustained much damage and the schools are still limping back to normal.

The following NSS volunteers accompanied the program officer for relief works: Sazidur Rahman, Emanuel Lakra, Pranjal Tanti, Rimon Lakra, Sunami Osga, Sumila Kerketta and Monika Tirkey.
