Spreading cancer awareness is important to remove misconceptions among people. We conduct mass awareness and detection camps in remote villages, schools, colleges, clubs, corporate offices, factories etc.
Till date, Deepsikha has organized innumerable awareness camps in the North Eastern States of India. These have been organized with the help of the respective district administrations, doctors from B. Baruah Cancer Institute (BBCI), local hospitals and Deepsikha's dedicated group of volunteers.
Often artists of repute have helped us in our endeavour. Street shows have been staged in remote villages, pamphlets and other educational materials (printed in local languages) distributed and awareness talks given by experts in a manner easily understood by the illiterate and partly educated masses.
Deepsikha continues its fight against the use of tobacco by distributing handbills and pamphlets to thousands of people, putting up posters in the schools, colleges and hospitals, and conducting awareness camps in places where a lot of footfalls occur daily.
