Lung Care Foundation organized the ‘Save Lungs – Extend Life ’ – Student Awareness Program for 500 students (in two batches) of class VII and 20 teachers of Delhi Public School, R.K. Puram, New Delhi on 28rd December 2016.
The session was conducted by Mr. Rajiv Khurana, Prof. (Dr.) Arvind Kumar and Abhishek Kumar in an interactive manner to make the message of Lung Care relevant to the students. Abhishek, also an alumni of the same school, began the session by introducing the core theme of Lung Care Foundation. Mr. Khurana empowered all the students to be ‘Little Doctors’ and Dr. Kumar shared his medical experience of treating diseased lungs caused due to various environmental factors. Dr. Kumar also spoke about the relevance of air purifiers and masks in today’s times.
The students expressed shock over the changing colour of our lungs due to air pollution. They were keen to look at the methods of combating air pollution and took a pledge to Lung Care Foundation’s five-point action charter towards ‘healthy happy lungs’.
