Triplar’s chosen Christmas charities 2015
Instead of the traditional sending of Christmas Cards to its clients and suppliers, Triplar will be making a donation to an international charity, a national charity and a charity local to our new office in Czech Republic. Sharing the Triplar Christmas donation fund this year will be Oxfam, the Child Growth Foundation and Debra Czech Republic.
The Child Growth Foundation (CGF) was founded in 1977 by Tam and Vreli Fry, the charity gives practical support to families who have been touched by a number of different growth-related conditions, as well as conducting ground-breaking research.
This a charity close to the heart of one of Triplar’s employees, whose sister was diagnosed with Russell Silver Syndrome before her first birthday. The family have benefitted from the continued support of the foundation for over 25 years, and as a way of giving something back continue to be involved in conventions and serve on the board of trustees – passing their experiences and tips onto other families.
Oxfam aims to save lives by responding quickly with aid and protection during emergencies, empowering people to work their own way out of poverty, and campaigning for lasting change to improve inequality in the world’s poorest countries.
Debra Czech Republic is part of Debra International, a worldwide network of national groups working on behalf of those affected by the genetic skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). The charity’s vision is to ensure that people living with EB have access to the best quality support and medical care, while also driving the development of effective treatments and cures.Back to News
