Awareness Campaign Visits the Book Fair

On February 6 Viswakamal carried its unborn-child awareness campaign to the Kolkata Book Fair. A team of five Viswakamal members were joined by the head of a women’s-health NGO who was inspired by the theme of the campaign. (The two children of a Viswakamal couple who participated were also present.) The leaflets attracted a lot of attention, in spite of the messages of all kinds that compete for attention at an event like the book fair.

Leafletting began about 2 in the afternoon, and before evening the 2000 leaflets that had been printed were almost exhausted. Viswakamal had been unable to print more due to financial limitations. With your help, larger numbers of leaflets can be printed for upcoming events, including International Women’s Day on March 8. If you can help, please write for instructions to with the word “donation” in the subject line. To see the Bengali and English leaflets, click here.

  1. I am also a fortunate recipient of that leaflet. I have gone through the entire leaflet. Please accept my heartiest gratitude that the silent mass awareness programmes you all are conducting.

    • Thanks for your support.

      We will have to do this again and again. After people think and think, their thinking will begin to change.
