On 6th January, 2018 the Don Bosco KDS Center in Baina organized an awareness campaign for women around Baina regarding their health and hygiene. The main aim of this programme was to create a healthier society by empowering women on various issues related to health and hygiene.
There were around 35-40 women who participated in this awareness campaign and benefitted from the insights shared. The programme enjoyed the collaboration of the Vasco Legal Aid Cell Students who helped in the organization.
Dr. Dharmendra Prabhudessai, an Ayurvedic Doctor and also vice-chairperson of Ravindra Bhavan, Vasco, spoke on the various health precautions women should take. He pointed out that a clean environment is the first step to reducing sickness. He encouraged women over 40 years to undergo screening for breast cancer, cervical cancer and other important issues, since they are becoming increasingly common. He encouraged the gathering to share their medical problems so that they could be discussed and benefit everyone. The interaction helped clarify a few health issues and contributed to the overall success of the campaign.
