New Delhi, Jan 18 (ANI): Hungarian Prime Ministers wife Klara Dobrev visited cancer patients in New Delhi on Friday.

Klara Dobrev is accompanying her husband Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany’s, who is on a four-day visit to India to boost bilateral relations.

Dobrev visited CanSupport, a Delhi based social service organisation that has been providing home based medical and emotional care to people suffering from cancer.

Dobrev took part in one of the yoga sessions for the cancer patients, and said that the deadly ailment is to be tackled by the society as a whole and not simply by doctors.

It’s not just the problem of health care system, it is not just the problem of doctors, it is the problem of the society which can be solved only with the joint effort like what we have seen it now,” Dobrev said.

CanSupport. (ANI)
