With this launch, Amway India has further reiterated it’s commitment to working towards building a better and more inclusive tomorrow for the visually impaired, aligned with this year’s global theme of ‘Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World’.
