LRAD Corporation and its employees are making a difference by dedicating time, resources and equipment to save and make lives better.
The Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation
The Company donated four LRAD 100X systems to The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (“ETAF”) in July 2016 for use on its mobile health clinics in Malawi. The communication systems are being utilized to broadcast greetings, clinic services and health education information to rural villagers in the Mulanje and Phalombe districts.
“Through our implementing partner, the Global AIDS Interfaith Alliance (“GAIA”), our mobile health care clinics have provided life-sustaining health care to the 1 million residents in these districts for almost a decade,” stated ETAF Managing Director, Joel Goldman. “LRAD Corporation’s generous donation equips our mobile clinics with versatile public address systems to better reach the communities we serve in Malawi.” For more information about the LRAD 100X and its use by GAIA/ETAF, please click Humanitarian Communication
