PCF is on a mission to spread Health Awareness among unprivileged villagersAre you healthy?

We ask ourselves this question every day. We brush our teeth, wash our hands, wear clean clothes, eat nutritious food and live a wholesome life, all in order to ensure that we’re always in the pink of health. Despite awareness and habit, many parts of the world are rampant with chronic hygiene problems that make millions of children suffer from severe diseases, causing countless deaths worldwide. Deaths, which could have been prevented if children from even the poorest of families had access to quality healthcare and basic medical services that many of us take for granted.

To uphold the cause, a team from Ponty Chadha Foundation, the charitable CSR arm of Wave Group, visits the deprived and underprivileged corners of rural India and provides free health services and check-ups. On the 18th of this January, for instance, our team visited Pipalheda village in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh along with a team of specialists from Dr. Ram Saran Garg (Indo-German) Hospital.

Towards a healthy world: From vision to action

We organised this health camp in Pipalheda to further commit to our vision of extending basic healthcare services to the underprivileged, especially children. It began with a ‘Nukkad Natak’, an entertaining musical skit that shed light on three important rules of health and hygiene:
1. Wash your hands – Before eating a meal and after using the toilet
2. Always use toilets
3. Healthy mother = Healthy family = Healthy future

Our vision to promote health awareness among villagers was supported by Delhi University students from Global Sustainability Summit SRCC 2017. They collaborated with us and presented a Puppet Show on ‘Children’s Health Awareness’ to elucidate healthy habits to both children and parents and stress upon the importance of immunisation, cleanliness and sanitation.

We believe that everyone who attended the Pipalheda health camp not only availed the benefits of our services, but also learnt the importance of health in our daily lives.
