Shillong: A team of the National Council of Churches in India (NCCI) on Monday began their two-day visit to the relief camps in Assam`s Kokrajhar, Chirang and Dhubri to take stock of the situation and to express solidarity with the victims of violence.
Led by Solomon Rongpi, the executive secretary for Unity, Mission & Evangelism, the nine-member NCCI team has representatives from the Presbyterian Churches of India, the Young Women Christian Association, the Lutheran Church and others.
"Today we visited four major camps in Kokrajhar and Chirang districts," Rongpi told a news agency.
