Rural Areas Are By No Means Beyond the Reach

How does it feel to live in an area where health facilities are rarely found or out of reach?  What happens when countless number of parents don’t really know how to take care of their babies just because they are uneducated?

Making a world of difference requires committed community health volunteers whose role is to perform healthcare services as well as awareness sessions to those who are illiterate in some rural reaches.
