Deka interacted with the office-bearers of the Non Profit Organization (NPO), Crystal Vision, which has been looking after the child care centre and also the staff of the centre.
She wanted to know about the health care services provided to the newborn inmates and also inquired about cleanliness and hygiene of the centre.

She advised the staff members of the centre to remain careful and perform their duties with a very holistic approach. She also urged upon the NPO members to follow the necessary guidelines of CARA in consultation with SARA, Assam, CWC and DCPU and share opinions with experienced people associated with the same in other parts of the State.
