Are you a “left sider” visionary or a misfit, what do you believe in?


Why do we believe in health and financial literacy?

The World Community

Your health and wealth does make a difference!

“We know and believe poverty breeds ill health, and ill health breeds poverty.“

The Secretary General, World Health Organisation, 1986

Health and Life CEO & Founder David Dahm believes in your happiness. This is the absence of human suffering, so you can have the freedom to pursue a self fulfilled life without deceit or coercion.

In 1978, at the age of 10, David went to India and had seen poor and disabled children begging next to the river Ganges just like in the 2009 movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. It is one thing to hear about these stories it is another thing to witness it. To this very day this image continues to haunt David and his desire to promote a just society.

David believes:

  • An empowered individual + empowered community = a sustainable and socially responsible society. A civilised society is one that operates with integrity and freedom
  • An empowered society can deliver empowered healthcare professionals who can help you when you know you need help.

So what are we actually doing ….read on.
