We wish you Good Health!
October raises quite a number of health-related awarenesses, such as:
Mental Awareness Month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, World Sight Day, World Arthritis Day, World Food Day, Global Handwashing Day, World Spine Day, World Trauma Day, World Osteoporosis Day and 2 upcoming - World Polio Day and World Stroke Day. 

The idea of having a day or a month dedicated to raising awareness to a certain topic/ issue is to continue educating oneself and others throughout the rest of the months (and years). 

We, at, hope this newsletter finds you in good health and perhaps our joyful articles will contribute in keeping you well.

Don't forget to enter our latest competition!
