A Multi Public Utility Centre (MPUC) was inaugurated by former executive secretary, ABAM, Rev. L Kari Longchar, at District Hospital Dimapur (DHD) on January 11, constructed by Dimapur Ao Baptist Churches and Civil Societies Covid-19 Co-ordination Committee (DABC&CSCCC). 

Addressing the gathering, convenor, DABC & CSCCC, Supo Jamir, stated that the MPUC at DHD was the by-product of the initiative of managing three Quarantine Centres (QCs) in Dimapur Government College (DGC), hosting a total of 245 returnees of different Naga tribes as well as non Nagas, from June 1 to June 20, 2020. 

Referring to 2020 as the darkest year in the history of mankind, he mentioned that even though the world was filled with darkness and chaos, Ao churches and civil societies, through prayer support from entire Nagas, came together and decided to start the QC. 

He stated that after starting the QC, numerous individuals and organisations wanted to donate in terms of cash and kind, but had to deny the donation as they had more than actually needed.  Jamir maintained that the host of 245 returnees in turn donated a sum of Rs. 43,361, which motivated DABC & CSCCC to build the MPUC at DHD for the welfare of all.  He further appealed the hospital authorities to take good care of the facility. 

DHD medical superintendent, Dr. Keveduyi Theyo, in his speech acknowledged the entire Ao population for their generosity and humanitarian work towards the hospital, which he stated, will only serve the public in greater ways. 

He further reminded how DABA had earlier constructed a waiting shed and also donated food packets and financial support to the hospital during the COVID 19 pandemic. 

Assuring to take proper care of the utility, Theyo also informed that a committee headed by Dr. Temsu has been formed to take care of the utility. 

Earlier, programme was chaired by president, Dimapur Area Ao Baptist Pastor’s Fellowship, N Lipok Jamir, and dedicatory prayer offered by former executive secretary, ABAM,  Rev. L Kari Longchar. 

It can be noted that the MPUC has four toilets (2 each for males and females), two bathrooms (only for patients and their attendants), UV purified drinking water, hand and face washing basins, mobile phones charging points and spacious resting shed.
