The People Helping People Association made the necessary arrangements in order that Congress of El Salvador issued a favorable opinion for this institution to decree the 18th of October as the National Day for Vegetables and Fruits Consumption, which was approved on the 4th of September 2014. This so important step was published nationwide through radio spots on a daily basis that were broadcasted in 15 radio stations with national coverage. One of the action lines of the People Helping People Association is in the educational area, specifically in health, in the prevention and early detection of all types of gynecological cancer. For the aforementioned we periodically schedule talks given by our medical advisor, who, within his presentation highlights the importance of the consumption of fruits and vegetables, to avoid
a recidivism in patients in cancer remission. Also is widely known that a nutrition lacking of fruits and vegetables considerably increases the risk of having cancer. The lack of water, mainly in the countryside areas, is a deterrent for Salvadoran families, most of all those that are in situation of vulnerability, to crop for their own consumption or the community, fruits and vegetables; for this reason we have considered very important to start the dotation of Wells in schools and communities in order to supply this lack and open doors for the beneficiaries to start their crops.
