The Dangers of Gutka and Drug Use

07 Oct 2017

 Dr Shahnaz Khalid of Helpline Trust  addressed the domestic staff of the Kindergarten and Junior Sections to make them aware of the dangers of using Gutka. Dr Khalid's presentation involved very disturbing pictures and videos of people who were suffering the early to final stages of mouth cancer. She explained and showed pictures of symptoms to look out for in the early stages. Pictures were also used to make the staff understand how gutka was made with crushed glass as an ingredient. Dr Khalid urged the staff to stop this practice immediately and suggested that users eat fruits or channa or roasted corn instead. It was a very powerful talk that left the staff with a great incentive to look after their own health
