New Delhi; The Heart Care Foundation of India(HCFI), a leading national not-for-profit organisation, organized the HCFI Teachers’ Awards today on 29th of September, commemorating the World Heart Day, at IMA hall. About 40 principals and 10 teachers from various government and private schools in Delhi-NCR received the awards for their exemplary contribution to health education at the school level.
The award ceremony started with a vocal performance in the name of Lord Ram by a boy who once was very scared because of some medical issue and was operated in one of HCIF Foundation’s hospital.
Speaking at the event, Padma Shri Awardee Dr. K.K Aggarwal, President of HCIF said, “At the outset, I congratulate all those who received the awards. Apart from being centres for imparting formal education, schools also influence the overall development of a child.”
