Nagaland launches women helpline ‘181’

Nagaland Governor PB Acharya has launched women helpline – 181 in the premises of District Hospital Dimapur in Nagaland and also inaugurated Sakhi, a one stop Centre, intended to support women affected by violence both in private and public spaces under one roof. He highlighted the multiple roles played by women as home makers, guardians of children and the hard work put in by them in every
field.  He was optimistic that problems of distressed women would be addressed through this project and also appealed to all the stake holders for extending cooperation, so that violence against women would decline.
