Cancer Awareness

The dreaded disease Cancer is on increase because of the change in the life-style, late detection of the disease, and lack of awareness particularly in rural areas.

Knowing the above fact HASSS is heading forward in creating awareness on different types of cancer and educating the general public in the rural villages and schools on preventive steps like early detection, different types of symptoms, screening etc.

There is a lot of stigma associated with Cancer. Few of them are fear and myths of incurability, pain, suffering, loss of control and independence, helplessness, isolation, loss of wages, poverty, and death.

To a certain extent the rise in cancer awareness in rural villages where HASSS has the contacts has reduced the stigma around the disease.

Promoting plastic free house, school and village:

The awareness on Promoting plastic free house, school and village is created by HASSS in the villages and schools during different programme. Separation of wet waste and dry waste was introduced and encouraged. Women and Children in the house and school are educated that how the wet garbage can be converted into manure and the dry waste to be accumulated and sold to a recycling unit.
