While in the West, impressive improvements have been made for overall development of life; people in developing countries are still struggling to ensure a better quality of life. Poverty, illiteracy of the population, unemployment, unawareness & ignorance, lack of infrastructural facilities and an over-burdened health care system makes the task all the more difficult. Hence, it is very essential that there should be some special activities with especially motivated and enthusiastic persons who can be geared to handle and tackle these burning issues. Moreover, it is a moral responsibility of all of us to help the people who are in need, in leading a normal and quality of life as far as possible.
