TURA: Sakaladuma, a small village on the foothills of the Nokrek Range, is soon to get a nursing training centre built purely from donations received from people of the region.
The Tura Christian Hospital Management Committee and Nursing School, Tura, along with the members of A’”chik Heritage Pursuits (AHP) recently visited the construction site at Sakala’”duma.
It may be mentioned that the training centre will be an outreach programme for five years, which will then be upgraded to a sub-centre.
AHP president, Prakash Momin, informed that the AHP will be assisting in the construction of the training centre.
“This (training centre) will benefit the residents of almost eight villages, viz. Daribokgre, Mandal Nokat, Sakalgre, Balladingre, Dura Kalakgre, Sasatgre, Chandigre and Oragitok, since the nearest hospital is at Asanang, about 22 kilometre away,” he informed.
According to Momin, the land for the construction was donated by one Poljonsing M Sangma from Sakala duma.
