It is ironical how so little has been said and discussed about the Bru population in the mainstream dialogues and policies. Our vision is to be able to provide them with not just resources but also opportunities so that they can establish a sustainable community ecosystem and become self-reliant. From giving them access to basic and free healthcare to generating employment through skill training and enabling the youth by means of computer literacy Sewa has been a forerunner in establishing not just a give and take ecosystem but to develop a human bond with the Brus.
Sewa International invites volunteers to come forward and support various initiatives by volunteering with us.
Medical Camp by Assam Rifles :
Since the entire northeast area has a considerable presence of the armed forces it becomes imperative to develop confidence-building measures with the local population. Assam Rifles in collaboration with Sewa International organised a medical camp for the Bru population in the Naisingpara refugee camp.
Not just guarding the frontiers, the Indian Army has been doing community building work throughout the country’s disturbed areas, including North East India.
In this regard, there are challenges that our volunteers and workers have faced and how those challenges have been converted into opportunities is what inspires us to do better each day.
A lot has been debated and discussed the importance of health and hygiene in the present times. Our honourable PM Mr Modi has also left no stone unturned to bring to the forefront the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and the need to inculcate Yoga as a means to bring a health revolution in the country. Sewa International through its generous donors has made efforts to focus on the health-related issues that concern the Brus.
Dr. Viren Naik, who was the main force driving the events at the camp was ably supported by Dr Arpan Chakma and few other doctors from local Govt Hospital in conducting the Medical Camp. The camp was very well received and appreciated by all in the community.The inputs from the medical camp and health awareness training are being used to devise the program for spreading the health awareness and focus on preventive health care in all 6 camps in North Tripura covering some 30,000+ displaced brus.
