Love is caring as caring is love. In this age; where the customer is at the center of everything, people are more aware and in control of their health today than they were back then.

At this age more men showing their spirit of care by are taking part in this field. This goes to show that caring for someone knows no gender but it’s the individual.
Although many diseases are genetic, most have also over the years been discovered to be caused by environmental issues such as quality of air (in China pollution), food (processed foods), lifestyle, spiritual, and mental social wellbeing.

A basic need, a human right. South Sudan’s environment is starkly beautiful but harsh. It has just two seasons: one dramatically wet, the other dry. Daily temperatures often rise above 120°F during both seasons. During the rainy season, water is plentiful for villagers, their crops, and their animals. But during the annual six-month dry season, life changes for the worst. This forces millions of South Sudanese each year to leave their village homes in search of water. Some have to abandon their homes and move altogether while others, usually, women and children, are forced to trek miles every day to collect water from ponds, marshes, ditches, or hand-dug wells. This water is often contaminated with disease-causing parasites and bacteria. The results are pain, sickness, and even death, especially among infants and children. It can kill within hours if left untreated, but up to 80 percent of cases can be successfully treated with oral rehydration salts, the WHO says.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that at least nine people have died in a cholera outbreak in war-torn South Sudan where five months of civil war has left thousands homeless and disrupted food supplies and health services.
