Corporate Social responsibility is not just a headline in our tasks calendar. Keeping up with our commitment towards society, Quality Group visited on the 6th of February 2018 “Karaiskakio Foundation” in Nicosia and donated €2.200 in hope to support the efforts to expanding their volunteer Bone Marrow Donor Registry.
The Marketing Director of Quality Group Mr Dimitris Krikellis delivered the bank cheque to Mr Paul Costeas, the Executive Director of the foundation, who stated that every donation helps the vision “for a world without leukemia” and the efforts of Karaiskakio to combine volunteering & specialized scientific support, in order to serve the needs of patients with haematological malignancies, both effectively and efficiently.
Mr Costeas informed us that, the Bone Marrow Donor Registry is composed of 160.000 individuals, the largest all over the world, in terms of the population ratio of Cyprus and this is something to be really proud of. Karaiskakio Foundation is composed of 27 professionals in the field of biology, molecular biology and haematologists, while during the last 3 years it is targeting and directing its research efforts also towards Child Cancer.
However, Karaiskakio Foundation is in need of a strong base of volunteers, as the operations of the foundation are heavily depended on fundraising, subscribers and minor government funding which are focused towards the conservation of the Donor Registry. This message is directed to all of us who are willing to help towards an excellent cause. If you wish to learn about more Karaiskakio Foundation or even become an active volunteer, please talk directly to them at +357 22 772700 or visit their website karaiskakio.org.cy
By integrating Social Corporate Responsibility into its business mentality, Quality Group is looking to support the work of institutions that aim to ease the lives of our fellow citizens. We commit ourselves to continue towards this direction.
