Service Wing - Sathya Sai Health Awareness Day

On Sunday 19th May 2013, a Sathya Sai Health Awareness Day was conducted by Sri Sathya Sai Organisation, Region 2, U. K, in partnership with Brent Indian Association (B.I.A), Wembley. The venue was the Brent Indian Association Headquarters.

The event was opened by local councillors and the chairperson of the Brent Indian Association, who acknowledged the work that was being done to promote a healthier lifestyle, providing a service to the local community.

Over 250 people from multicultural backgrounds sought professional advice and support for their medical needs. Services included, blood pressure, blood sugar, BMI checks and an opportunity to discuss findings and obtain advice from General Practitioners and a pharmacist. Dental and Optometry checks and advice were also provided, with referrals made to local services when required.

We were also grateful to have the support of Diabetes UK and the Stroke Association who attended and provided an informative display. Topics included, amongst others, advice on foot care, lifestyle changes and even nutritious recipes, in different languages.

Presentations, on health related topics, were made throughout the day and this engaged attendees during the waiting time. Many who attended commented on the loving atmosphere and the caring, cheerful manner of the volunteers and professionals.

We are grateful to our beloved Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, for blessing us with this opportunity to serve in His name.
