On 14th I spoke to Dr.V.D.Kapurmath of cancer hospital and requested him to tell about swine flu prevention and symptoms. On 15th August in Ashwathpur Sri Ram Seva Sangha I conducted the awareness on swine flu and the group consisted of Women and children.Dr V.D.Kapurmath told about what kind of Prevention they must have to take and how it spreads and later as the community people started asking questions he was more interested he even told about AIDS, Cancer and TB also. The way he delivered the talk was interesting and community people requested him to continue for another 30 minutes and he told what kind of government facilities are there and how it can be utilized by the people from hospitals.

Dr.V.D.Kapurmath serves the poor people and he goes to villages and slum areas and do treat the patients freely and will not expect anything from them and he even create awareness not to consume Gutka and other Tobacco products as it causes cancer .He has organized Blood Donation Camps In many places. During natural disaster he collects funds and sends it to President of India.

Lastly Mallamma gave vote of thanks to the Doctor and to the community for providing us an opportunity to conduct Awareness on Swine Flu.
