According to Emrana Sheikh, ENTERPRISE HR HEAD – INDIA & SOUTH ASIA AT JOHNSON & JOHNSON (J&J), “Our support to UNICEF is deep rooted. We are supporting the mission to expand and reach quality health care delivery for more than six years. Our partnership with them has resulted in numerous initiatives that have empowered communities at grass root levels.”

“J&J believes that good health is the foundation of thriving communities and forward progress. As a leader in the care and wellbeing of children and their families, we understand how critical it is for every mother and child to have access to quality healthcare at every step– from prenatal stages until way after the birth of the child,” she added.

According to Sheikh, “We are celebrating World Children’s Day in our office with colour and vigor! We are supporting UNICEF’s #GoBlue initiative by signing the #GoBlue petition, which asks world leaders to do more towards fulfilling child rights. Additionally, to celebrate every child’s right to education and schooling, every J&J employee is wearing blue and our office in Mumbai has been lit in the same colour for the occasion.”
