Make a Donation for relief programme for the Manipur Violence 2023 victims

The state of Manipur has been ravaged by devastating ethnic violence and arson since May 3rd, 2023. Tragically, this has resulted in over 100 fatalities, with more than 5,000 people injured. The destruction includes over 4,000 houses, numerous villages, and more than 220 churches set ablaze. The aftermath left approximately 70,000 individuals displaced from their homes.

Data from the field

According to a recent report by an NGO (June 7, 2023), there are currently 12,838 internally displaced persons (IDPs) residing in 77 camps in Churachandpur, 10,305 in 47 camps in Kangpokpi, 8,000 in Moreh/Tengnoupal, 8,000 in the valley districts, and about 6,993 (in 7 camps) in neighboring Mizoram. In addition, there are 183 IDPs in 3 camps in Guwahati, 1 camp with 16 people in Delhi, and countless others affected.

These displaced families find themselves without homes or land to return to. The situation is dire, with an urgent need for essential supplies such as food, clothing, and medicine. Among those affected, women and children face heightened vulnerabilities. RWUS (Relief Workers United Society) has been at the forefront of providing relief since the very beginning.

RWUS has been distributing dry ration kits, medicines, mosquito nets, and clothing to those in need. Our focus remains on supporting pregnant women, lactating mothers, and children.

Current situation on the ground

Currently, the camps housing IDPs are being managed and supported by local community-based organizations (CSOs), civil society organizations (CBOs), and NGOs. In the initial days, local communities contributed clothes, firewood, rice, and vegetables. However, as the situation has worsened, even those who are less affected struggle to earn a living. There is an acute shortage of water in all the camps, leading to unhygienic living conditions. Health concerns, particularly for pregnant women, lactating mothers, and the elderly, are a pressing issue. Urgent requirements include food, medicine, hygiene kits, drinking water, undergarments, mosquito nets, mattresses, utensils, and clothing.

We are proud co-founders of Women in Governance (WinG), a network of women across districts in Manipur, and a national-level organization (WinG-India). Our mission is centered on equal distribution and justice for all. With 15 years of experience in humanitarian aid during conflict situations, we are well-versed in the challenges and dynamics of such crises. We have also received training in Local Capacity for Peace (LCP) and have established partnerships with Action Aid and Sphere India for our humanitarian work.

Our relief efforts have made a significant impact thus far. As of May 27th, 2023, we have reached 1,604 IDPs, including 4,566 females, 3,464 males, 1,750 children, 364 elderly individuals, 104 pregnant women, and 320 lactating mothers. The aid provided includes food, sanitary napkins, medicines, and more.
