The Maldives Customs Service has launched a healthy and fitness program for staff, reports Miadhu.
The program, named ‘Healthy Lifestyle Program’, is part of the ‘Sports for All’ national program being organised by the Customs Recreation Club (CRC) with the collaboration of the Ministry of Human Resources, Youth and Sports.
The program aims to increase the level of education and awareness of health issues among customs staff.
