NGO Mladiinfo Montenegro organized a volunteer event on the occassion of Health Day, which took place at the Independece Square on April 7th.
Members of the organization, who are trained as medical staff, handed out pamphlets with health tips, and they also checked blood pressure, sugar levels and weight for all who were interested. More than fifty citizens, mostly the elderly, took advantage of this opportunity. They also got tips on how to improve their health.
With this event we wanted to raise awareness of Montenegrin citizens about the importance of health, and to remind them that they should get annual check-ups and visit doctors whenever necessary. This way, it is possible to prevent diseases and illnesses and their advancement.
We also wanted to inform citizens about healthy lifestyles. Our volunteers and members were approached by interested citizens, asking about the event and the organization. NGO Mladiinfo Montenegro will participate in the Festival of Health and Healthy Lifestyles, which will take place in Delta City on April 8th and 9th. Here we will introduce our youth summer camps related to healthy lifestyles and sport, which we are organizing in Sutomore and Prčanj in June and July.
NGO Mladiinfo Montenegro promotes volunteerism and encourages the youth to actively participate in their community. M!M was founded with the goal of improving the status of Montenegrin youth through information, education and active participation. Our vision is that the youth play a major role in the growth of our society.
