 Yikhum Village Baptist Church (YBC) under Wokha district inaugurated rehabilitation centre (Ekumrhong) on March 20, 2021.

According to DIPR report, while congratulating YBC, deputy commissioner (DC) Wokha, Orenthung Lotha highlighted that Yikhum village was the first village in Wokha district to become a tobacco free zone and added that the inauguration of the rehabilitation centre was another milestone of the church ministry. Highlighting earlier failure of such rehab centres in the district, DC opined that success and sustainability of such centre required dedicated specialists and professional human resources as it dealt with human complexity.

Speaking at the programme, chief medical officer (CMO) Wokha, Dr. CW Tungoe said that de-addiction or rehab centre initiated by the church was real missionary work. CMO added that Wokha district had earlier faced failures in two rehab centre, de-addiction centre at district hospital (1999-2014) and inter-denominational care centre (2006- 2013) due to lacked of funds. He said that the district was in dire need of such centre as it was witnessing high surge of substance and alcoholic abuse and addiction in the district. Dr. Tungoe also assured the church that the concerned department would come forward and assist the centre for its success.

Pastor YBC, R. Nzanbemo said that the vision for establishing the centre under the aegis “Ekumrhong” “lifeboat” was to save the perishing souls of persons/families spiritually and socially. Nzambemo said the centre was established through the generous donations of the church members and well-wishers. Earlier, pastor Longsa BC Rev. L.K. Tsanglao dedicated the centre while pastor, UBC Doyang, Rev. Ellis Lotha delivered the God’s message.
