As a pharmaceutical company we are well aware of our social responsibilities. CROMA-PHARMA is committed to sharing knowledge and experience/expertise to improve health standards especially in underdeveloped regions of the world. For many years CROMA-PHARMA has been supporting the internationally-active relief agency LIGHT FOR THE WORLD with much needed ophthalmic products and expertise and manpower.
Large quantites of pharmaceuticals, viscoelastic fluids and intraocular lenses from own production, which are desperately needed in Africa for cataract surgeries – have been sponsored to LIGHT FOR THE WORLD as in-kind donations. The long-time partnership with LIGHT FOR THE WORLD has been awarded with the TRIGOS, the most important CSR award in 2014.
LIGHT FOR THE WORLD is a European confederation of national development NGOs committed to saving eyesight, improving the quality of life and advocating for the rights of people with disabilities in the underprivileged regions of the world.
