Peren, November 02 (NEx): The launching program on COVID-19 Mass Awareness Campaign for Peren District was held on Monday, November 02, 2020 at Deputy Commissioner’s Conference Hall, Peren.

The program was organized by TEAM ONE in collaboration with Department of H & FW and NSDMA Peren with an aim for sustainable prevention of COVID-19 community transmission in the district.

The Deputy Commissioner of Peren, Sentiwapang Aier advised the organiser to tie up with various Government departments to witness more successful convergence even in coming days.
