Posted on Tuesday, October 08, 2013 by LEAD

Diseases such as Typhoid, Malaria, and Dengue are deadly diseases and occur frequently.  But, if people take proper precautions, they can easily protect themselves against these diseases.  As people who live in villages generally aware of how to properly protect themselves, HIT Nidasoshi LEADer Kalayani visited the nearby village of Sankeshwar to teach the village people how to effectively protect themselves against Typhoid, Malaria, and Dengue.  Kalayani and her team of other LEADers first consulted a doctor, Dr. Maldar, to find out more information about the diseases, how they spread, and how to take precautions against them.  Dr. Maldar informed the students that Malaria and Dengue are spread by mosquitoes, which are attracted to stagnant water, while Typhoid is spread by consuming contaminated water and food in dirty surroundings.  The team of LEADers visited more than 20 homes in the village and informed them about the importance of maintaining a clean, hygienic environment to protect themselves against these deadly diseases.  The people listened and considered the students' suggestions seriously and thanked the LEADers for providing them with life-saving information.
