In this context I started this NGO with an intention to support and empower women in fields such as health, education, etc. As a start, we will be launching cancer screening camps in 70 urban slums in Greater Hyderabad, hold nutrition camps at schools in Ranga Reddy district and livelihoods projects in Old City, said Ruchika.
