NESCH spreading presence

The North East Support Centre& Helpline (NESCH) has extended its helpline services to metro cities in India.

According to an official statement, the year 2014 had the highest record of racial attacks and incidents of discrimination against North East communities.

 The expansion of the North East Helpline was launched in a consultation meeting organized by NESCH in its national head office at Hyderabad on July 11 where key North East community elders, scholars, religious heads and student leaders participated.

 The National President of NESCH, Bishop Paothang Haokip, expressed the reason for expanding the reach of the NE Helpline: “The number of people migrating to metro cities from North East India has gone up from 4.5 lakhs to 11 lakhs in the last five years and the challenges faced by these communities are no longer confined to Delhi and NCR, they are reported from other metro cities also.”

 The North East Helpline for Delhi and NCR will be coordinated by Mahrauii Sailo, National Secretary of NESCH, with a team based in Delhi. The National Helpline will be coordinated by Rev. Madhu Chandra, National Spokesperson, from Hyderabad.

 

The National Helpline will network with its branches running in other metro cities. Northeast Solidarity Bangalore and the North East Helpline Mumbai have been running independently with their helplines since 2012.
