“Uncover the Obstacles” campaign is sponsored for two years
Berko Pharmaceuticals, adopting the point of view to create value in the society, has been supporting TOFD’s successful “Uncover the Obstacles” campaign for two years. Berko Pharmaceuticals, placing 350 plastic cover collection boxes at important points of hospitals and family health centers throughout Istanbul last year, has placed 150 plastic cover collection boxes at hospitals and family health centers across Turkey.
1 ton of plastic covers were collected and four manual wheelchairs purchased
In order to ensure the participation of orthopedically handicapped individuals to social life fully and efficiently, The Spinal Cord Paralytics Association of Turkey has been carrying out the plastic cover collection campaign under the name “Uncover the Obstacles” since 2011. Thanks to the plastic covers collected with the campaign, battery-powered and manual wheelchairs are purchased for orthopedically handicapped citizens who have filed an application to the association. Within the scope of the project, Berko Pharmaceuticals has contributed in the collection of 1 ton of plastic covers and purchasing four manual wheelchairs to this date.
