With the help of the community networking officers, around 60 families were reached and informed about the key aspects of cancer and palliative care.

An awareness camp about cancer was also organized on the same day. The session on cancer awareness was conducted by Savita Luka, Deputy Head, Training & Education at CanSupport.
