1st December 2006 was the World Aids Day. As a welfare initiative, Godrej Factory
Dispensary in association with MDAC-Mumbai Districts Aids Control society organised AIDS Awareness Programme at Pragati Kendra.
Exhibition with AIDS awareness posters were held at Pragati Kendra and the Factory Dispensary. AIDS DAY awareness was also projected with Banner display at all Company’s and colony gates. Free distribution of booklets and condoms was also organised.
In continuation to the several initiatives on AIDS awareness, we had the privilege of MDAC conducting an educative and hillarious street play in Marathi “Kaal Ala Aahe Dhavun” at the lawns of Pragati Kendra. It was well received and appreciated by the large audience.
Over and above the awareness programme, a Camp for free HIV diagnostic testing was organised after counseling each member. It was quite encouraging, as more than 60 employees took the opportunity and got themselves tested. All tested negative.
