The Covid-19 pandemic has caused massive disruption and pain to millions across the planet, but in their own small way the Seng Kur Warjri has struck a victory for humanity by coming forward to help struggling clan members.
In a press release today, which also announced that the body’s annual meeting had been cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions, the Seng Kur Warjri informed about the plight of an elderly woman, Thaneh Warjri of Kyrdemkulai, who was struggling to feed her grandchildren in times of the coronavirus.
Within a short span of time Warjri’s daughter and husband died, leaving her alone at home with her grandchildren. Warjri also suffers from blindness caused by cataracts and her eldest grandchild, though still an adolescent, had to assume the responsibility of feeding her two younger brothers and ailing grandmother by taking on petty jobs in the village.
“The misfortune of the family came to the notice of the clan elders of Seng Kur Warjri and immediate actions were taken by the clan organisation to provide some [help],” the release said.
Essential commodities and clothing were donated to the family and also arranged for the renovation of a shed that was in a dilapidated condition.
Today a delegation of the clan organisation, led by its President, DL Warjri; General Secretary, Sunshine Warjri; and two executive members, Rudy Warjri and Raphael Warjri, visited the affected family and took stock of the situation while contributing more essential items.
The Seng Kur has also appraised every unit in the state to be vigilant about such cases of adversity so that timely aid can be provided.
