The Kuki Khanglai Lawmpi (KKL) under the banner of 'Helping the Helpless' has never shunned the odd stricken and downtrodden individuals to their state of being but got involved in solving their hardships. Stranded persons from Shillong and other far-flung areas have been given transportation so as to bring them home.

The initiative for containing and rehabilitation of the mainland returnees was given to KSO. However, when the management of the returnees went out of proportion, the Kuki Khanglai Lawmpi (KKL), in response to the District Administration’s request, agreed to man Community Quarantine Centres (CQC) at various locations.
