World Malaria Day was observed at a PAN India level by Smile on Wheels, the mobile hospital unit of Smile Foundation by sensitizing people across the country on keeping the surroundings of their homes clean, getting rid of stagnant water in the neighborhood and use of mosquito repellents and what is to be done immediately if someone gets affected with the disease etc. People were greatly benefitted from the sessions and pledged to take measures to keep away from the disease.
