Novartis associates in Bangladesh on Sunday organised different activities to support autistic children.
Novartis partnered with PFDA Vocational Training Institute, a voluntary organisation that works to educate, empower and employ people with disabilities this year, said a press release.
Under the “happiness distribution” initiative, employees raised funds by auctioning paintings drawn by children. They also promised to sponsor a number of children’s training and education.
In 2019, more than 13,789 Novartis associates from 56 countries volunteered more than 110,312 hours of combined community service.
