“NaCam is very secular in nature, but it functions like a fellowship. It has its own ministry of reaching out to fellow Naga friends in times of suffering and difficulty. Worshiping, interaction, fun, games and eating Naga dishes are some activities during the meet,” Wibonbou further said.
Every Naga coming to Cambodia is encouraged to enroll himself or herself to NaCam, because it is a home far away from home, it further added.
