However, most cancers in India are detected late. To prevent this, the Project “Shakti” has been planned.In this project, camps would be organised. A sophisticated bus with Hologic Mammogram would come to screen women. In addition to identifying breast cancer, the project would also treat any breast cancer identified through the project totally free of cost. 


Ganga Hospital Director and Chief of the Department of  Hand, Microsurgery and Burn Injuries Dr Raja Sabapathy in  his address said Project “Walk for Life” is a project in which we identify diabetic patients with foot ulcers and treat them early so that we can avoid amputations. 


If any person screened has any diabetic foot wounds, the project would treat them totally free of cost. This would help to prevent amputations and save lives due to sepsis.The District Collector Dr Sameeran  IAS, was the chief guest for the inauguration.
