 Dimapur Town Hostels Welfare Forum (DTHWF) paid a visit to various frontline workers at train, bus stations, quarantine centres, Nagaland Police and Traffic control room, commissioner of Police office and East Police Station on June 20, as a gesture of recognition for the selfless services rendered by the mentioned during this COVID-19 pandemic.   

A press release from DTHWF general secretary, Dr. Imna Imchen stated that, during visit to Nagaland Police station, one personnel expressed that, “we are like shadows. People do not recognise us for our works.” While visiting the Traffic control room, a personnel said, “we are not perfect but we are also trying our best to make everyone comfortable. Sadly, many people are not cooperative with us and the traffic rules, making it more difficult for everyone.” 

During the visit to NST bus station, the DTHWF were dismayed by the fact that drivers of NST buses, ambulance and private buses were one of the most neglected and ignored frontline workers. With bare minimum facilities and comfort, they risk their lives transporting both positive and negative COVID-19 passengers. Expressing that hardly any NGO or civil organization have visited them, a driver said that they no longer stay with their families but in a hotel and drive hundreds of miles on pathetic roads, unsure if the passengers were free of COVID-19. 

DTHWF also held fellowship with the frontline workers and shared home cooked meals prepared by DTHWF executive members and volunteers.
