No Spitting Drive towards better health & hygiene and the environment (District 315)

Inner Wheel Club of Banjara

District Chairman: Sunitha Vallam

President- Roma Gandhi

Secretary- Krishnaveni Singh

Date: 16th September 2021

The habit of spitting is one of the primary causes for the spread of communicable diseases.

Public nonchalance, a widespread culture of betel and tobacco chewing, and poor health laws are responsible for this menace. Educating, sensitising and disseminating information about the need to stop spitting are vital steps to raise awareness against spitting.

The Inner Wheel Club of Banjara President, Roma Gandhi participated in the No Spitting Drive organised by the Rotary Club of Jubilee Hills at Nampally Station today.

The intention was to raise awareness by putting up posters and speaking to people about the ill effects of spitting in public places.

IWC Banjara will be contributing ₹10,000/-for Dustbins and to promote environmental cleanliness for the benefit of the community.
