Making a Difference
We support social and educational causes in Europe and beyond.
- Social initiatives in Europe and developing countries: “Little Hearts” (Kleine Herzen), “Bambini Cardiopatici nel Mondo”
- Education: Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Munich
And we are grateful that our employees share our commitment. By taking part in these social impact activities they want to make a difference in people's lives.
Support for Children
Many orphanages in Eastern Europe lack the funding to provide children with a loving home . This is the reason why we at Daiichi Sankyo have decided to support "Kleine Herzen" ("Little Hearts") as our social impact initiative on a Pan-European level. "Little Hearts" is dedicated to improving the quality of life for orphans transforming orphanages into family homes.
Access to Healthcare
In developing countries access to healthcare is a challenge for many patients. In Senegal 30,000 children are waiting for cardiac surgery - many will not survive. Our Daiichi Sankyo colleagues in Italy want to improve cardiac care for children in this West African nation and therefore support the Italian charity "Bambini Cardiopatici nel Mondo" to help build a new hospital building in the country's capital. The non-profit organization is supported by volunteers – more than 150 surgeons, doctors and nurses – and organizes heart surgeries. Our Italian colleague and the NGO share a common vision: to give the hope of life to children with heart disease.
Research and Education
For the last six years we have presented outstanding graduates of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Munich with the "Daiichi Sankyo Master Prize". Our goal: To support young promising talents and to promote research. Many previous award winners went on to pursue careers in pharmaceutical development and research.
