WORLD HEART DAY
The heart beats about 2.5 billion times over the average lifetime, pushing blood to every part of the body. This steady flow carries oxygen to the host of essential cells. It also whisks away the waste products of metabolism. So it is important for us to take care of our heart. To spread awareness about the same we celebrate World Heart Day.
World heart day is celebrated on 29th September of every year. In 1999 the World Heart Federation (WHF) together with the World Health Organization (WHO), announced the establishment of World Heart Day. More than 90 countries participate in the celebration each year, and as a result of these, World Heart Day has proved to be an effective method for spreading information about cardiovascular health. This level of involvement enables information to reach the mass.
We at GISK, celebrated World Heart Day by engaging kids in discussion regarding cardiac health. We arranged the display of food items which are beneficial for heart and also prepared and exhibited charts on activities which help in keeping heart healthy. Few learners also explained habits to be followed for better heart health.
