Our partnership comes at a time when many communities in flood-impacted areas are fighting water-borne diseases. We believe that this initiative will contribute to the wellbeing of our growers.”
The Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sehat Kahani – Dr. Sara Saeed said that: “I am thrilled to announce the signing of this resourceful partnership with Syngenta. This strategic partnership will enable the farmer-families across remote areas, to call our healthcare professionals and get online consultations, instantly.
