Candle Light Memorial Day

SCOHD Society is one of the major organizations to participate in the celebration of the International AIDS Candlelight Memorial in Pondicherry. The purpose of this event is to honor the memory of the people who died from HIV/AIDS and to, simultaneously, raise awareness within the public in regards to HIV/AIDS. In past years, the first section of the event is organized by SCOHD Society and consisted of the lighting of the participants’ candles using a single flame (handmade by the staff). The march went from the SCOHD Headquarters to the Pondicherry New Bus stand.
