- 24 School kids Identified To Spread Message Of Immunity Across India
- Drive Organised across 9 States, Touching Over 10 Lakh Kids
New Delhi, July 7th, 2010: With rising incidence of flu and viruses taking a toll on India, Dabur Chyawanprash -- the flagship healthcare product from the House of Dabur – undertook a unique campaign, christened Immune India, reaching out to over 10 lakh children across 9 states to spread awareness about building stronger immunity to fight these new-age diseases. This mammoth campaign was carried out across 820 schools in the country.
“Today’s fast-paced lifestyle, our errant eating habits and now Monsoons are all taking a toll on our health. The best way to prevent ourselves from a host of lifestyle diseases and recurring ailments is by building a stronger immunity. A recent national survey pointed out that 85% doctors feel that building stronger immunity is the best possible preventive measure against virus attacks. Considering this, Dabur Chyawanprash – the country’s natural choice for Immunity building – has taken up the responsibility to educate the kids and their parents on building stronger immunity,” said Mr. Praveen Jaipuriar, Category Head – Health Supplements, Dabur India Ltd.
In order to further spread the message of good health and immunity across the country, Dabur Chyawanprash and its brand ambassador Mahendra Singh Dhoni have now identified 24 schoolchildren who will form a team of India’s Immunity Ambassadors. “The idea of this initiative was to educate children about the need for building stronger immunity to stay healthy and thus stay ahead. The immunity ambassadors, besides featuring in Dabur Chyawanprash Immunity campaign, will spread the message about the need to boost immunity. The selected 24 Dabur Chyawanprash Immunity Ambassadors have got a chance to meet and interact with their icon Mahendra Singh Dhoni and learn his health secrets,” Mr. Jaipuriar added.
The selection of the 24 Immunity Ambassadors marks the culmination of the nationwide school-level awareness drive rolled out across nine states – Delhi-NCR, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Punjab, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
The 24 winners also spent a day with their favourite cricketer MS Dhoni today, seeking tips on health management, immunity building and fighting fatigue. Addressing the kids, M S Dhoni said: “Being cricketers, we travel a lot and experience a lot of climate changes. If your immunity system is not strong, you tend to fall ill and suffer from ailments like cough, cold, fever etc. But if your immunity is strong, you will not suffer any of these ailments. So, it’s extremely important to build your immunity, and Dabur Chyawanprash is a good supplement to boost your body’s immunity. I am happy that these kids will take this immunity message across India.”
