WHY ‘THE – SARA’ PAMPHLET CAMPAIGNS?
Suicide Prevention is a neglected issue in India. There is no Grant in Aid Policy of Govt. of India for Suicide Prevention Organization in India. With no financial support from both Society & Govt. side very few Organizations are coming forward to work on the issue of Suicide Prevention in India.‘THE – SARA’ with its commitment towards cause and Society time to time carries out Pamphlet Campaign with the Themes related to Mental Health. We invite different Companies/Brands to Sponsor & Support these Campaigns.
