GOOD HEALTH is GOOD WEALTH, GOOD HEALTH MATTERS.
In cities people have more medical resources and fundamental health information; healthcare is least cause of concern. Whereas in remote villages of underdeveloped & developing nations, basic health care is a BIG cause of concern, and that is taking away lives. Such grave event(s), can be avoided.
To name few instances in remote villages: There are many children who cannot read/write owing to eyesight issues which they not aware of. Blood Anemia is very common among girls. Adults have hygiene problems to make situations worse. Sad situations such as these can be avoided.
Be Educated is very excited to announce ‘Be Educated – Be Well’, (flyer) full day health camp program.
