As part of activities to mark World Oral Health day, Unilever organized a health walk around Aburi Mountains last Saturday.
The health walk saw employees of Unilever walking and jogging to the top of the mountain where an aerobic session was held.
The General Manager of Unilever Ghana , Ziobeleton Yeo explained that the event was not only held to mark World Oral Heath day but to also inculcate good oral hygiene habits in Ghanaians.

Mr. Yeo further indicated that Unilever seeks to reach-out to 1 million children across the country by reducing the spread of oral diseases through education and sensitization programmes in schools.
The Head of Communications and Sustainability, Unilever Ghana, Henry Malm also indicated that Unilever will hold a series of sensitization programmes on oral hygiene.
