This Indian Origin UK philanthropist’s Only Aim Is To Save Lives Falling Prey To The Deadly Disease Cancer
From the ‘LYF’ Desk
Meet Mr. Kulwant Singh Dhaliwal, an Indian-Origin UK businessman, the only aim of whose is now the eradication of cancer from the world. He is a ‘Global Ambassador’ of registered charity ‘World Cancer Care’ spreading awareness and helping thousands to fight against Cancer.
The day this gentleman lost his mother to the chronic disease ‘Cancer’, he pledged to not let anybody’s mother die of Cancer.
Yes, he saved numbers of mothers and others from being falling prey to the disease.
If unfortunately, anyone falls prey to the disease, he’s helping them to fight and win over.
The day his mother breathed her last, he took an early retirement from his well-settled business in the United Kingdom with the only motive to devote his rest of the life for the eradication of cancer, a deep-rooted disease in the society.
Hailing from a small town of Punjab (India), Moga, Dhaliwal was born on May 10, 1958, in Bir Rauke village. After he completed his graduation from the DAV College Jalandhar, he went to the abroad United Kingdom.
The day he emigrated to the UK, he was just 27 years old. Toiled hard in the foreign land, he set up his business and rose to the heights bringing laurels for his native land Punjab.
Dhaliwal was always eager for the service of mankind since his childhood.
In 1991, he set up Sant Singh Dhaliwal Trust in 1991 in the name of his father to raise voice against the female foeticide, the adolescent marriage of girls and lack of educational resources available for poor.
Since Dhaliwal was already concerned about the social evils or any sort of issues affecting the mankind, the day suffered a huge blow when his mother died of cancer and even his father in law too fell prey to the disease, he decided to stand against the disease like a mountain to save the mankind from this blot.
Despite Dhaliwal was busy with his well-settled business, he decided to take early retirement from his business when he was 47 and thereon he has been spending every second of life for saving the people from Cancer.
Impressed by the determination and his thoughts for the mankind, Dhaliwal was selected as a brand ambassador of ‘World Cancer Care Society’ in 2014.
You will be surprised to know that Mr. Dhaliwal has not been taking a single penny from the ‘World Cancer Care’ despite he has been devoting every minute of his life for the purpose. He has added so many feathers in his cap by winning national and international awards as appreciation for his service to mankind.

England Detecting 980 Cases of Cancer Every Day, While Punjab Turned a World Cancer Capital as 43 dying Daily-Dhaliwal
Cancer increase 21.7 percent in the world, says Mr Dhaliwal.
In England, where the population is 7 crores, daily 980 cases are being detected which is a serious concern. This has been said by Dhaliwal in his address during a program in Canada.
Dhaliwal claimed that compared to the entire world, most deaths due to cancer are taking place in Punjab. Punjab is also called a world cancer capital.
He claims 43 deaths are daily taking place in Punjab, out of 43, 36 ladies are dying due to breast cancer and cervix cancer. The important fact is that these two cancers are curable only if you detect it earlier may be at the first stage.
“Cancer enters into the second and third stage from the first because Punjabi people go to the Tantriks, who are not letting the people cure cancer. Alarmingly media is also publishing the adds of these tantrik (occultist) in newspapers. Luckily the UK and Canada government are not allowing these adds to be published in media there. Believe me, the only cure of cancer is early detection and prevention, nothing else. It is well said by someone, “Prevention is better than cure” Dhaliwal said while interacting with the media persons in Ludhiana, Punjab recently.
He while setting a satire on the Punjabis said that every fourth Punjabi is suffering from diabetes and every gurdwara is offering sweet ‘jalebi’ in its langar(a communal free kitchen), it’s illogical totally. “Sikhs have meddled themselves in the langars but there is a need to distribute langar of medicines to save the generation.
“We need to change the direction of donation including clean water, education, and medicine, ”Dhaliwal said.
Punjab has 12783 villages, and our world cancer care did 8200 checkups. Special buses from England have been sent to Punjab.
“We are checking cancer on roads, including breast cancer, cervix cancer, prostate cancer, oral cancer, and throat cancer, with a waiting list of only 15 minutes. Daily we are checking 25 villages and are giving a report to the United Nations.”.
Guru Arjun Sahib had opened hospitals but Punjab has opened gurdwaras Dhaliwal said adding that Punjab has 12783 villages but it has 33000 gurdwaras and on an average, 3 gurdwaras in every village. Guru Sahib had told people to do service of humanity but people are straying from the real path.
Why Need Camps In Rural India
With the increase in a number of cancer cases in India, the number of Cancer Centres with excellent infrastructure and trained Doctors is also increasing in urban India. However the same is not true about rural India.
As per the www.worldcancercare.co.in this is reflected in the fact that, nearly 70% of Indian population lives in rural India. However, nearly 95% of cancer care facilities are in urban India. Thus, though the incidence of cancer in rural India is nearly half of that of urban India, the mortality rates are double.
If cancer care facilities have to be improved in rural, more Camps have to be developed in smaller cities and in rural India.
There are no any cancer awareness, early detection and early diagnosis in rural regions. Even the majority of people unaware form Cancer Early Symptom.
By the time, the patient can arrange the logistics to go to cities for diagnosis and Treatment; it causes further delays in treatment and advancement of the disease.
All this leads to the vicious cycle: Because these patients come with advanced disease, the outcomes are poor; and because of poor outcomes, other rural patients are not motivated to take proper treatment on time.
If this vicious cycle is to be broken and cancer awareness, early detection has to be organized for the rural patients at their doorsteps, in their familiar environment then survivor rate can be improved.
Another reason why Cancer, not timely diagnoses because Cancer Diagnoses is becoming more expensive day by day, the series of expensive investigation are out-of-pocket from patients.
It would be very important to organize a free cancer screening program through the mobile campaign in the rural area so that patients getting the highest quality of cancer care at their doorstep.
We all want to win the cancer war however it cannot possible by any alone, we need your kind of support how to help us time to time so that we focus on creating cancer awareness and prevention. Simple cost-effective methods have been developed for early detection and Cancer Awareness.
Why Early detection is Important
Early detection of cancer greatly increases the chances for successful treatment. There are two major components of early detection of cancer: education to promote early diagnosis and screening.
Recognizing possible warning signs of cancer and taking prompt action leads to early diagnosis. Increased awareness of possible warning signs of cancer, among physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers as well as among the general public, can have a great impact on the disease.
Some early signs of cancer include lumps, sores that fail to heal, abnormal bleeding, persistent indigestion, and chronic hoarseness. Early diagnosis is particularly relevant for cancers of the breast, cervix, mouth, Prostate, Oesophageal, and Oral.
