About the "Give smiles to children" campaign
Between May 1 and September 30, La Roche-Posay together with the pharmacy chain Help Net launches the campaign "Give smiles to children" for support The Institute for the Protection of the Mother and Child "Alfred Rusescu" (IOMC) from Bucharest. For each product from the range of sunscreen ANTHELIOS sold during this period, 2 LEI will be donated towards the renovation of the waiting room of the IOMC ambulatory. The campaign is valid exclusively in the Help Net pharmacies.
"We chose to be close to our patients daily, we made a commitment to be part of community life and we did so by actively engaging in campaigns with a strong social component. We identified problems, facilitated free access to information through the advice of our specialists and we offered patients the opportunity to make the best choices for a healthy life. Our adherence to this campaign is another way of showing our social involvement and interest in community health. " Alina Marin, Category Manager Help Net.
The Institute for the Protection of the Mother and Child "Alfred Rusescu" (IOMC) was founded more than half a century ago and is known as one of the units that offers day and night medical care in the outpatient hospital units. Scientific research (in the field of mother and child health) is a major objective of the IOMC activity. Also, the IOMC is the coordinator of numerous national programs for mother and child health.
