TB awareness in Nagercoil school

IDF organized TB awareness programme at Adarsh Vidyalaya, Vettoornimadam, Nagercoil on 27th Oct. Dr. S. Franklin, Manager-Southern Region and Mr. Ramesh Darwin, Asst. Development Executive of IDF gave special awareness talks on Tuberculosis to the students in the morning assembly. Students from standard 9th to 12th received a special powerpoint presentation and film-show on TB and HIV-AIDS.

Mr. H. G. Jeya Harish, Principal of Adarsh Vidya Kendra called for whole-hearted support from the students to IDF's humanitarian services. He said first of all the students should sacrifice some of their needs and contribute to the well-being of the society.

The students were quite impressed by the awareness program and they said that they are quite privileged to study in a good institution and they believed that they have a duty to reach-out to the rural poor people with TB awareness programs. The entire staff of the school extended all possible support and promised to do their best in making the social program a grand success.

Dr. Gopal Surendran, the Secretary of the School, appreciated the good service rendered by Indian Development Foundation and said the students have a significant role in serving the sick and needy.
