I am the Chairman of Neil Charitable Trust, Bombay, India. 1) The basic aims of the Trust are as follows:- - To create awareness and educate Children studying in municipal schools about the hazards of smoking and the chewing of tobacco, in all forms. These kids hail from the poorer sections of society, and whose parents are major tobacco addicts. - With the assistance of school children, via morchas and other forms of protest, to bring to the notice of the Central Government/State Government that: a) ‘ghutka’ is still being sold inspite of the ban. b) Smuggled Cigarettes without statutory warning and mandated markings are sold openly. c) To actively provide entertainment to cancer-affected children. Every weekend groups of cancer-afflicted children are taken to places of public interest, like film shootings etc. Special arrangements are made to ensure that these children have an enjoyable time when they are taken out, including provision of meals. d) To bear the radiation treatment of poor cancer-afflicted patients, children as well as adults, who come to Nair Hospital, Mumbai. 2) Works done:- - Held numerous protests including against the following:- a) Smoking in Public Places and Government Offices. b) Selling tobacco to minors. c) Selling of smuggled cigarettes without Statutory Warning and mandatory declaration under the Standards of Weights and Measures. d) Cigarette advertising and product placement in films (invited for a Workshop by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting). e) Illegal advertising of Low Tobacco cigarettes. f) Illegal advertising g of Four Square cigarettes in the Outlook magazine. g) Illegal advertising of gold flake greeting cards. h) Illegal advertising of Marlbro cigarettes in Stardust (conviction obtained by FDA because of Petitioner’s efforts). i) Illegal advertising and Consumer Gift Scheme by Panama and Red and White cigarettes. j) Illegal packets of Marlboro cigarettes with human models. k) Protest against Vending Machines used for sale of cigarettes. l) Complaints and protest against smoking lounges built by cigarette companies.

Vincent, Your advice and knowledge is wonderful! Keep up the great work you are doing. I’ve tried so hard to quit smoking and did so for 11 months. Thinking of children and grandchildren helps tremendously. Thank you! Best of the best, Shauna
