This is just to send our sincere appreciation for yesterday’s advocacy program conducted at our Center. Please convey our message of appreciation to your ED Wangda Dorji Sir who is an inspiration to all of us. Seriously, you have the right team for a such program that demands a typical skill of presentation.
Being a large construction Company with more than five hundred employees, we are also equally concerned about the spread of HIV and AIDS in the community. As a matter of fact, there is nothing we can do but educate and create awareness amongst ourselves, which, indeed, is the most effective and easiest way to prevent this disease from spreading. Therefore, we join Lhak-Sam in spreading the message as our contribution to this cause.
