The PHOENIX group has been supporting the KULTURBRAS e.V. association, which is based in Germany and Brazil, for over 25 years. The association’s core activity is the operation of a day-care centre in Fortaleza, Brazil, in which 96 schoolchildren aged between three and thirteen currently attend school and receive regular meals. Since it was opened, the school has supported and cared for around 1,000 disadvantaged children. The association’s administrative functions in Germany are undertaken by volunteers.
The PHOENIX Pharmaceutics Science Award has now been one of our flagship projects for more than 20 years. Over the years, the original intention of maintaining and publicising cutting-edge research in Germany has been reinforced by the objective of using this Approach to strengthen the pharmaceutical supply chain in the long term. Every year, an independent jury sifts through innovative, original work with pharmaceutical relevance from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. From these entries, prize winners are selected in four categories. The accolade, with a total value of €40,000, is one of the most prestigious science prizes in the German-speaking world. It is also the only award that recognises the latest work from a whole scientific field.
As part of the "L'hôpital de mon Doudou" project for children between the ages of 2 and 11, PharmaVie finances the construction of mini-hospitals in the children's ward. In the colourfully designed rooms, the children are looked after personally and get a playful explanation of what is going to happen during their upcoming surgical procedure, for example. A teddy bear, which they receive directly on their arrival, helps them. In this way, the little patients can be relieved of their fear of hospitalisation.
