Sanitising our hands, combined with the other prevention measures for limiting the spread of Covid-19, are our protective shield and our main weapon in the fight against this novel virus, and since the beginning of the pandemic FARCOM has substantially helped by providing its products free of charge, on a regular basis, to various organisations, bodies, and vulnerable social groups.

New CSR action by FARCOM for “THE SMILE OF THE CHILD”

Continuing its consistent efforts to provide support and safety to socially vulnerable groups during this difficult period of the COVID-19 pandemic, FARCOM proceeded with a major donation of antiseptic products to THE SMILE OF THE CHILD.

Given the adverse conditions brought about by the health sector crisis, the needs of the NGO keep increasing while its resources keep dwindling; in other words, its needs for support are more urgent than ever.

FARCOM offered a hand sanitizer for each child and a hand sanitizer for each employee of The Smile of the Child, throughout Greece. We wish them to be able to overcome their difficulties; may they carry on their invaluable work, safe and full of energy, as they have been doing for 25 years.

FARCOM readily responded to the appeal by the Deputy Minister of the Interior (of Macedonia & Thrace), Mr. Theodoros Karaoglou, to donate antiseptics to the General Police Directorate Headquarters of Thessaloniki.

The company, continuing its Corporate Social Responsibility actions and activities, provided 2.000 Hand Sanitizers for the hygienic protection of the forces who daily offer their front-line services. The donation reflects FARCOM’s conviction that support by the private sector during periods of major crises is critical and has a decisive role to play.

FARCOM standing by the children of the GREEK CHILDREN’S VILLAGE at Filiro

FARCOM readily responded to the appeal made by the Greek Children’s Village at Filiro to meet the fundamental needs of its facilities that are experiencing an unprecedented crisis.

Due to the circumstances caused by the pandemic in the country, the Children’s Village is facing unprecedented dwindling in sponsorship and donation support, which exacerbates the threat against its very operation.

FARCOM, following up its efforts to support vulnerable social groups in a spirit of respect and responsibility, responded readily by donating to the village personal hygiene and children’s hygiene products, both for the children and their carers, wishing them to soon overcome the major challenges they are facing.

This award was received by FARCOM during a landmark year, as 2020 marks the company’s golden jubilee. FARCOM has been a major cosmetics industry in Greece, offering consumers top quality and aesthetics products for half a century.

Besides, by the end of 2020, FARCOM’s new, ultra-modern production plant is to be completed, deployed over an area of 10,000m2; the project’s investment budget exceeds  5,000,000 Euros  and makes it a pivotal point for further growth in the years to come.

FARCOM: Antisceptics donated to SOS Children’s Village in Plagiari

 

 

 

Personal antiseptic packets have been donated by FARCOM to protect children residing under the guardianship of SOS Children’s Village in Plagiari. Once again, FARCOM has confirmed its corporate social support to agencies fostering children.

SOS Children’s Villages provide care and protection to children who, for whatever reason, cannot be brought up by their parents. This supporting care is provided on a stable and long-term basis from the early sensitive years of childhood to the point when the young person can stand on their own two feet – properly prepared for life as an ethical and vocationally qualified member of society.

We would like to warmly thank Mr. Agathonikos Drepanidis for his acknowledgement letter to FARCOM.

We wish health and prosperity to him, the children, and all the people of SOS Children’s Village for their invaluable daily social work.
