Health and Environment

In the field of Health, we unselfishly provide our support to medical institutions, non-governmental organizations and citizens' associations that are struggling to improve the conditions for health treatment, providing appropriate treatment and care for persons suffering from rare and serious diseases, as well as financial assistance for individuals - natural persons who require special treatments or surgeries abroad.

Environmental care is an important segment of our Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy encompassing projects that contribute to raising awareness among citizens about environment protection from potential polluters as well as educating young people about the importance and significance of the term "recycling”. Our employees actively volunteer in the realization of most of the environment protection projects.
