Chairman's Message :
Due to modern civilisation and restricted physical activities, non-communicable diseases like Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension, Obesity, heart problems are on the rise.
When a family buys a vehicle (two or four wheeler) for their personal use, their regular physical activities are reduced. They will use vehicle even to go to nearby shop to purchase their daily needs.
Due to western culture, food habits of our people have changed. Children of this generation are interested in eating junk food and fast foods. So children of this generation are prone to develop over weight and non-communicable diseases in the early part of their life.
So it is our aim to teach the people to be healthy by following life style modifications.
