Why We Are Involved in Anti-TB Campaigns

Image
Why we are involved! The Anti-TB Champions TB is devastating not only for the individual but for the household and community too. A case (the one with TB) needs all the care possible before they are adversely affected. This requires screening, testing, treatment and constant supervision to ensure adherence. These services may not be available, either due to lack or difficulty in accessing services. Social, cultural and economic factors stand in the way of how people are able to overcome the vulnerabilities which expose them to such devastating experiences like TB or HIV, Malaria and COVID-19. In the case of TB, a person who has not had care may die soon due to loss of ability to sustain life in many ways. The lungs are rendered incapable of drawing in oxygen to the body. TB migrates to the entire body, the person is incapable of feeding and gets so thin that they eventually die.  We care because we do not want such suffering to be experienced by any one. No one will be left behind. Whe

Gardening Is Rewarding

Image
Gardening is rewarding in many ways. Imagine a day when you have set aside time to till the land or care for your garden. It involves your physical side, holding a hoe or spade and swinging it around to perform an activity takes strength and sweat. You have to do it repeatedly so that you are able to clear a wider seed-bed or tilled land. Yes, you subject yourself to intensive work. It is strenuous but at the end of the day, it is rewarding. But, the rewards are immense. The rewards are physiological, physical and psychological. At the physiological level, the brain for instance, gains nourishment in form of an outpouring of dopamine, serotonin and noradrenaline. These hormones refresh the parts of the brain called the frontal cortex where most of the functions that ensure routine are prompted. The physical nature of work, prompts muscle coordination as well as oxygen intake in the body. Physical work done repeatedly blossoms into experience, skills-building and acquisition of quality
