World AIDS Day Action

Every year in early December, DTC jointly with Cosmetics traditionally hold an action devoted to the World AIDS Day. This year •• (Estée Lauder) volunteers visited DTC’s + Center again. The professional visagistes told the mothers about makeup specifics and gave them prompts for skin care, as well as engaged the women in a holiday makeup party.

The Estée Lauder Corporation and its brand osmetics provide support to DTC projects aimed at assisting HIV-affected women and children. “This is really a good tradition for us to hold the action jointly with M•A•C makeup designers on December 1,” says Olga Sukovatova, MAMA+ Project Coordinator. “All company employees, from visagistes to senior staff, are really concerned about the problem of HIV/AIDS”.

The World AIDS Day has been commemorated since 1988. In 1996, it was turned into a campaign against AIDS. In 2011-2015, the World AIDS Days will be held under the headline “Getting to a Zero: Zero New HIV Infections, Zero Discrimination, and Zero AIDS Deaths”.
