Empowering widows

On International Widows’ Day, Loomba Trust, in association with Blossom Kochhar Group, is celebrating the graduation of 10 widows trained in hair and beauty care by renowned aromatherapist Blossom Kochhar at an event to be held today at the res idence of the British High Commissioner.
