October 10, 2016

Shri. Anto Antony (MP) inaugurated the second phase of the Women’s Fellowship Healthcare Training on 10th October 2016, in the presence of Dr. K.P. Yohannan, Metropolitan.

In his inaugural address, Shri. Anto Antony briefly talked about the importance of health education. He also appreciated the church for its various health initiatives and projects undertaken for the welfare of the poor and needy in the society.

Speaking on the occasion, Metropolitan shared about the church’s vision to impart health education to the people in extremely remote areas as well as educate rural women about basic hygiene and healthy habits, thus improving their quality of life. In his opinion, educating the women was more important than men, because of their larger role in the homes and social circles.

Mrs. Gisela Yohannan, Mrs. Dr. Siny Punnoose, Mrs. Jeena Praison, Fr. Praison John and Fr. Daniel Johnson also shared the dais at the inaugural function.
