7th Krka's Week of Charity and Volunteering

During Krka's Week of Charity and Volunteering, organised for the seventh year in a row, Krka employees joined forces to help the people in need, strengthening the company's values of volunteering, charity and care in many places across Slovenia and other countries as well.

Every year we are pleased to see an increasing number of colleagues from Krka's companies and representative offices abroad join our efforts. From 9 to 14 April, 1,100 Krka employees came together under the slogan Charity is also a part of us. Krka employees donated blood, clothes, toys, footwear, food, books and other necessities for adults and children, as well as pet food at various locations across Slovenia. We donated 120 litres of blood, collected nearly 4 tons of various necessities and 350 kg of pet food. We socialised with the elderly at 31 retirement homes and the wards and pupils of 10 occupational activity centres, special education schools and other institutes and institutions all over Slovenia. At the Ljubljana Zoo we engaged in landscaping tasks.

On Saturday, 14 April, we opened our doors to the visitors from the University of the Third Age and the employees of various humanitarian organisations and retirement homes with which we collaborate in our campaign. Krka's central production site in Ločna, Novo mesto was visited by 2,000 people. It was a week filled with genuine smiles and warm handshakes during which gratitude and happiness seemed to radiate from everyone's eyes. We all felt inspired by what we experienced, knowing full well that what we do for others is what counts the most.
