Bayer has joined hands with the National Association of the Blind (NAB) India Centre for Blind Women to train blind women.
These women may be visually challenged, but they are trained to conduct a certain kind of touch that will help early detection of breast cancer.
Life science company Bayer is conducting an awareness session for its women employees; the session is called 'Discovering Hands' wherein blind women will use their highly developed sense of touch for early detection of abnormalities, which could be indicative of breast cancer.
She informed that the training is conducted by the NAB India Centre for Blind Women, New Delhi, in collaboration with Discovering Hands, Germany.
''Discovering Hands is a fine example of supporting innovation for a social cause,'' he noted.
