“The effort to promote physical well being should be continuously encouraged. To keep the body in good health is a personal responsibility and priority; otherwise we will not be able to live a happy, fulfilling life.”
– Sunandā Ong, Project Coordinator

“When I was pursuing the course ‘Nutrition and Community Health’ in UPM, I aspired to help my family and friends understand the importance of good health. During my university years, Nalanda has given me the inspiration to serve an even wider community! And through this event, I’m truly blessed to have fulfilled those wishes.”
– Sadhikā Tan, Project Coordinator
