Rai Foundation aids Judd’s mission in India

MUMBAI: The Rai Foundation joined Hollywood actor Ashley Judd in the war against HIV / AIDS by organising a fundraising event recently.

Judd, who is the global ambassador for PSI-Youth AIDS Project, is meeting sex workers, young girls and people living with HIV and is discussing issues related to safe sex and HIV / AIDS, during her current month long stay in India.

Population Service International (PSI), a Washington based NGO, addresses global health issues. On the occasion, Rai Foundation chairman Vinay Rai announced that all Rai Foundation campuses across India would offer free counseling and testing for HIV/AIDS as an extension of the Youth AIDS prorgramme. Judd, on the other hand, has offered a scholarship in her name every year to a girl chosen from India by her to pursue her studies at Rai, officials said.
