As a concerned citizen you decide to take up their cause and organize camps to make the villagers aware of the importance of hygiene. Taking ideas from the given notes and the unit on ‘Health and Medicine’ alongwith your own ideas, write a letter to the editor of a newspaper, in about 120 words, expressing your concern and encouraging youngsters to take part in such campaignsCauses of ill health

Subject: Creating Awareness towards Health and Hygiene



Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper, I wish to draw the attention of the youngsters towards the negligent attitude of people towards basic health and hygiene. The villagers are not paying any attention to sanitation and personal hygiene which is leading them towards ill health. This hurdle can be overcome by organizing Health Camps in these areas where we can make these villagers aware of the importance of a healthy lifestyle by means of discussions or health check ups by specialists. A small dispensary can also be set up there for their regular routine check up. They must be taught that cleanliness is next to godliness. I invite youngsters through this letter of mine to volunteer their names so that we can put our plan into action. A little effort on our part will save these villagers from contracting serious diseases.
Thanking you.
Yours sincerely
