Actor and philanthropist Vivek Oberoi who is the anti-tobacco spokesperson for the World Health Organisation and associated with Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA), has initiated a social awareness campaign, Hawa Badlo. It is a short film on air pollution in collaboration with the actor’s ONE foundation and Gas Authority of India Limited (GAIL). ONE foundation has also launched a video that questions our attitude towards traffic cops. The actor will donate 10,000 anti-pollution face masks to traffic cops. Says Vivek, “Salute to the traffic cops who put their health at risk for our safety. It’s a small initiative. I would request people to come forward and support the cause Hawa Badlo.”

“Air Pollution has proved to be a growing menace in the last few years. Rising cases of respiratory diseases has made it imperative that we choose a corrective path towards the future. Our daily choices affect the course of our tomorrow and switching to cleaner fuels like natural gas should be our first step towards changing the air. GAIL (India) Limited is glad to partner this much needed cause with Hawa Badlo,” says BC Tripathi, Chairman & Managing Director, GAIL (India) Limited
