PACES is a unique organization that mainly aims to provide after-school sports programs and offers development opportunities for under privileged children. It seeks to be an outlet that is fun, healthy and encourages healthy interaction among the children. PACES provides equal opportunities for both boys and girls to participate in their sports activities, they even encourage girls to participate and shine through these activities and they have gained credibility and acceptance from the local communities due to their consistently good work. Hikma Pharmaceuticals is proud to continue its work as a partner in PACES projects thus aiding its growth and development in line with its dedication to improve the quality of people’s lives and as part of its Corporate Responsibility practices.
Ms. Rasha Al-Shaqarin, Hikma’s Corporate Responsibility (CR) Coordinator, stated, “Just like PACES’ projects, Hikma aims to improve the quality of people’s lives. The cooperation between PACES and Hikma is therefore a logical manifestation of CR initiatives through which we can channel our responsibility towards our community in a dynamic way as we are working towards a better and healthier future.”
Ms. Deema Shahin, country manager of, PACES Jordan, stated, “We express our gratitude to all institutions such as Hikma Pharmaceuticals that do not fail to give all they can to assist and empower our community and lend a hand in building the capacity of individuals to develop their latent talents and motivate them."
Thanks to Hikma’s donation, PACES Jordan has the ability and capacity to keep on improving the lives of many children in need.
