text: When the Bala morung is rebuilt (that actually was the case recently) the Balang morung helps and gives a post. The three other morung also each give a post but otherwise offer no help. From Wanching the three morungs, Balang, Totang and Bala come and help. When the Balang morung is rebuilt the Bala men help. In addition the people of the Longokoa morung of Shiong come to help. Dzem-ang knows no details about building for An-kheang or The-phong.
