HAFLONG, Nov 24 � In a unique gesture, the All Dimasa Students� Union (ADSU) donated syringes to the Haflong Civil Hospital authority as the hospital was in short supply of the syringes since quite sometime now.
It is learnt that the AIDS Testing Centre at Haflong Civil Hospital was running short of syringes and even testing kits were in short supply since the last few months. This compelled the common people to purchase the same from the open market, thus resulting in extreme hardship to the downtrodden patients.
The Superintendent of Haflong Civil Hospital when contacted, disclosed that though indents had been placed before the Centre, but the items were not supplied since quite sometime now.
Aripom Bodo, president of ADSU, while handing over the syringes to the Superintendent of the hospital, said they were informed by the people that syringes were not being provided, which prompted them to donate the syringes so that it could be of help to the needy patients.
