Reverse Osmosis (RO) water purification plant and dialysis unit were installed at Dimapur District Hospital (DHD) here on Tuesday under the initiative of Western Sümi Baptist Akukuhou Kuqhakulu (WSBAK).

WSBAK executive secretary Rev. Dr. Phughoto Sema, who dedicated the RO plant and dialysis unit donated by WSBAK, said that a seven-day commitment was made to carry out the initiative and communicated among members about the project. He said that about 780 young people came forward to donate money for the cause, adding Rs.19 lakh was collected from March 14 to 22, 2020 for setting up of RO plant and dialysis unit, bed and air conditioning.

Rev. Phughoto also informed that as of now the hospital had two functional dialysis units, but the infrastructure was set up for four dialysis units, adding that two dialysis units were still needed. Also, speaking on the occasion, Covid-19 technical team of WSBAK, Dr. Hotokhu Chishi said that during the Covid-19 pandemic the WSBAK formed a technical team of WSBAK and decided to work on two things-- to establish a quarantine centre for the people (quarantine centre ran for around one month in collaboration with Western Sumi Hoho) and to identify the most needed areas that could be used during the pandemic. He said that during the survey, they found out that DHD did not have intensive care unit and chemo dialysis unit.

Dr. Chishi said the team has, therefore, set up their priority and decided to focus on providing a dialysis machine unit along with installation of RO plant in April 2020 and started the mission. However, he said that due the lack of infrastructure, the installation was carried out only in December 2020.

Describing Dimapur as a unique district unlike other districts in Nagaland, Dr. Chishi called upon all to come forward and extend help. “It is time for every tribe, community, leaders to learn and participate and contribute…,” Chishi said.

With regard to health infrastructure, Dr. Chishi said that “we have been neglected badly and have failed miserably, many have lost their lives because of the lack which is unfair.” 

He, however, expressed optimism that with the participation and contribution there was hope for a change and better tomorrow. Dr. Chishi expressed hope that the responsible authority would utilize the installed facilities to the most possible for the needy and downtrodden.

Medical superintendent Dr Keveduyi Theyo proposed vote of thanks while WSBAK mission and evangelism secretary Rev.Tovishe Sema said the benediction.
