Injury is an increasingly significant health problem throughout the world.

Accidents and traumatic events cannot be avoided, but their consequences can be mitigated by planning, exercises and preparedness. Although major events affect whole society, their impact on vulnerable groups is more evident. Children and youth which belong to the vulnerable groups need to be considered for special planning and education.
There is a lot we can do to help the person who has been affected, by extending timely help and save a life. Through this movement it is aimed at spreading awareness in the society with special focus to educate youth. Orientation programmes will be conducted among the schools, colleges and various other organisations interested, thus put our best efforts to bring down this alarming situation under control.
