MUMBAI: CNN-IBN, India’s leading English News Channel has yet again proved that it believes in delivering news which is above noise and touches the lives of people. Going with the mantra ‘Journalism of Change’, the channel has brought positivity to a lot of lives through its inclusive and impactful journalism. Recently, CNN-IBN initiated two public service campaigns, namely ‘Save Arian’ in association with change.org and ‘Go Monica’. While the former intended to help Arian, a 12-year old boy suffering from a rare genetic disorder called Hunter's Syndrome, the latter set out to support acid attack victim Monica Singh and make her dream of pursuing higher studies abroad come true.
The channel diligently showcased the stories of Arian and Monica and appealed to the country to come forward and contribute wholeheartedly to save the child’s life and to help 28 years old Monica in fulfilling her dream of pursuing education from New York’s Parsons School of Design. The country did respond to the channel’s call and came together to contribute Rs. 30 Lakhs to save the 12 year old Arian’s life. Designer duo Shantanu and Nikhil also pledged to help Monica. Donations also poured in from all across the globe to help Monica resulting in the accumulation of 44,000 dollars for her tuition fee. The Arian campaign achieved landmark success when a US based pharmaceutical company decided to provide free medicines to Arian for the rest of his life.
CNN-IBN is thankful to all its viewers for their overwhelming support and making our campaigns a huge success. Indeed, the channel stays committed to taking the ‘Journalism of Change’ forward for we do not just report, we care.
