DENGUE AWARENESS CAMPAIGN-2017 and Village cleaning drive conducted at Boluvampatti, Coimbatore on 15th October 2017

Dengue is a serious disease which can drastically reduce the immunity of a person by reducing the platelets count in one's body. It can often be fatal. Many cases of deaths have been reported from all around the country, a few from this village, which made us hold the dengue awareness campaign in Boluvampatty. Dengue, frankly, cannot be prevented by giving vaccine, but its propagation can be controlled through awareness campaign among the public. Papaya leaf extract and neelavembu kasayam, , are really helpful to raise the immunity up. They are served in the government hospitals or it can be purchased from an ayurvedic medicinal store. Also, since the mosquitoes breed in pure water, it is better to leave no form of water uncovered around the houses.

In order to create an awareness about dengue among the people of Boluvampatti , a door to door awareness campaign was conducted on 15.10.2017. We were welcomed by Mr. Suresh, S/O Former president, Boluvampatti and Social activist. The students from the ecoclub went to each and every house at Boluvampatti and created an awareness by giving hand-outs and gave a brief note about the disease, its effects, symptoms , remedies and control measures. People greeted us whole heartedly and listened us with patience.

As part of the visit, cleaning drive was started at the afternoon on the same day. Students were provided gloves and plastic bags. The road sides and school campus have been swept and all plastic bags, plastic materials were removed and carefully disposed in the dustbin. The materials which can hold the rain water was also removed. Nearly 20 saplings were planted in the area where clean drive was conducted.
