Neptune Group has undertaken a charitable initiative under its Corporate Social Responsibility program. The group has come up with an innovative way to support young couples who are patients of HIV. Neptune Group will facilitate them with the free of cost provision of nutritional supplements. The drive is being called Nutritional Supplement Support Programme and is to be held on 12th September.
Nutritional Supplement Support Programme will provide nutritional supplements to young couples who have an HIV infection. The programme will provide monthly ration along with a protein bottle per couple. These provisions will also be for pregnant women along with patients under ART Treatment from the BMC as on 12th September, 2015.
The spokesperson for Neptune Group said, “The attitude of our country towards patients suffering from HIV remains biased. There is more awareness needed on this subject. By organizing the campaign to support patients of HIV, Neptune Group not only aims at the provision of nutritional supplements but we wish to bring about a change in people’s attitude as well.”
Nutritional Supplement Support Programme, also being called HIV+ Nutrition Programme, is scheduled to run from 10 am to 1 pm this Saturday. It will run at BMC Hospital, MG Road, Mulund West.
