Our collaboration with the Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences, Fortis Healthcare is a step further in the same direction and we are proud to associate with them in providing one of the most crucial part of the healing process that is post-operative therapy. All the activities under the ToGETher Transformed umbrella will aim to ‘enable, enhance, encourage and empower women by making them feel appreciated and inspired”.
