Asha Daan - The gift of hope
As a company, we have always believed in 'doing well by doing good'. In 1976, HUL supported the setting up of Asha Daan – a home for abandoned, specially-abled children, HIV-positive people and the destitute in Mumbai. Asha Daan (meaning Gift of Hope) as an institution has truly been a Gift of Hope to so many.
Missionaries of Charity, founded by Mother Teresa, manages the home, housed in the 72,500-square feet plot that belongs to HUL. The company takes care of the home's maintenance and upkeep.
At any point of time, HUL takes care of over 400 infants, destitute men and women and HIV-positive patients at Asha Daan.
