Crazy for a cause
Two plays by Crazy Mohan will be staged to raise funds for creating TB awareness
JUST FOR LAUGHS From “Chocolate Krishna”
REACH (Resource Group for Education and Advocacy for Community Health) has been working in Chennai for the past 10 years to promote awareness among the public about the major health threat posed by tuberculosis.
India accounts for one-third of the global tuberculosis burden and despite the efforts of the Government even today thousands of people are dying of the disease which is curable. REACH caters to the needs of patients from the lower socioeconomic strata by
supporting them through treatment, providing counselling and motivation, removing the stigma of TB that isolates the patient from society, offering support in terms of food, conveyance and additional tests that the patient may require, helping patients to stay motivated to complete the six to eight months of treatment needed to be fully cured.
To raise funds in aid of TB patients REACH presents two popular comedies by renowned film script writer and comedian Crazy Mohan — “Chocolate Krishna” on August 12 and “Meesai Analum Manaivi” on August 13 at Narada Gana Sabha, TTK Road.
Donor passes priced at Rs. 1000, Rs.500 and Rs.300 (inclusive of both plays) are available at REACH, 9/5, State Bank Street, II Floor, Chennai-600002, ph: 28610332, 65211047 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and at Narada Gana Sabha from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
