Therefore it is our responsibility to conserve the Natural Resources.

The resource person from CARITAS India Dr. Haridas gave input on Natural Resources Management and the tips for healthy living.

He explained how natural resources like Air, Water, and Soil etc are wasted and polluted. He explained the how the modern food habits and lifestyle of people cause dangers to life. The Ozone layer is affected due to air pollution; in the City like Delhi people are not getting proper Oxygen to breathe. People are consuming vegetables, fruits and other products filled with pesticides and chemicals. As a result hospitals are mushrooming, the life span has reduced and sicknesses are increasing day by day.

After the input and dialogue, the action plan is made to manage Natural Resources in Panela area.
