Aditya Birla Group supports IDF

A two-day exhibition on Indian Development Foundation was organised at the Aditya Birla Group office at Andheri (W), Mumbai on 19th and 20th Jan.09.

IDF's health awareness banners and posters were put up at important points and the team members from Aditya Birla took keen interest in the social responsibility programme.

IDF had also displayed various products specially made by physically and visually challenged persons. The executives and officers from Aditya Birla purchased the products and thereby helped in empowering the differently-abled persons.

A couple of persons have also sponsored children studying in IDF Bal Gurukuls while some sponsored blankets for the leprosy patients suffering from cold weather in northern India. Many have assured of their support in the near future.

Indian Development Foundation which partners with StopTB Partnership has taken the opportunity to create awareness on Tuberculosis by placing banners and posters on TB. The team from Aditya Birla took active part in the awareness programmes too.

IDF conveys sincere thanks and gratitude to each and every member of Aditya Birla Group for supporting various social causes in humanitarian interest.

Mrs. Smita Patwardhan, Dy. Manager, Aditya Birla Management Corporation Pvt. Ltd. expressed happiness as members from ABG came forward in supporting various humanitarian causes. Many corporates and business houses should come forward and support IDF in putting up health awareness cum resource mobilisation stalls and participate in the social responsibility programmes, she expresed.

Students from ITM Business School, Kharghar, volunteered at the camp as part of their social responsibility programme.
