Taking forward the agenda of providing healthy living & tobacco-free life to construction workers on our members’ sites, women’s wing has organised series of cancer awareness and dental check-up camps which have immensely benefitted the construction workers.
One such camp was held today – March 13, 2018, at Kshitij by Tridhaatu Developers in Matunga West, conducted by Ms Jayalaxmi of Vasantha Memorial Trust, who is doing pioneering work with cancer patients.
Health camp started with traditional lamp lighting and singing of prayers by Ms Jayalaxmi and members Mrs./s Sonal Shah, Anuradha Shah, Sejal Goradia, Falguni Shah, Mona Ajmera and Jesal Shah.
Ms. Jayalaxmi’s motivational talks on cancer awareness and inspiring workers to quit tobacco was much appreciated by the participating workers. She also presented an audio-visual showing harmful effects of tobacco and why one should and how one can give up tobacco. Not only this, Dr Gunjan Thakkar’s team conducted dental check-up of over 100 workers and suggested effective remedies to them.
It is always very satisfying to see so many happy workers who inspired by our camps pledge never to use tobacco again and lead tobacco-free life.
