Commenting on the initiative, A Mahendran, Managing Director, Godrej Sara Lee Ltd, said, “We are concerned about the Dengue outbreak in the country. Studies conducted by our research centre on the causes of various vector borne diseases have identified the need for preventive measures, including usage of mosquito repellents, to protect against infection.”
