As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, Genus is committed to acting responsibly in respect of its economic, social and environmental impact on society.
We are committed to providing continued support to our selected charities and encourage our employees to actively engage in activities that bring sustainable benefits.
It is of particular concern to us that in developing countries millions of people continue to suffer and die from preventable or treatable diseases. This is why Genus is committed to providing ongoing health support programmes in Africa which improve the health and quality of life for people in these communities through provision of medicines, education and advocacy, and investment in disease prevention and healthcare infrastructure.
Our support programmes are long-term commitments, designed to be scaleable, replicable and sustainable.
By working in partnership with non-government and leading health organisations, we believe it is possible to achieve significant and long-lasting improvements in healthcare and in the quality of life focussing specifically on people suffering from Tuberculosis, Burkitt’s Lymphoma or Parkinson’s disease.
If we had just one charitable aim, it would be for the complete eradication of Tuberculosis!
We are proud to be playing our part in the eradication of this preventable disease by being a major contributor to TB Alert and by supporting TB Alert projects in India, Malawi and Zimbabwe, as well as in the UK. Genus also provides continued support to TB healthcare specialists by providing multi language TB support packs and sponsorships.
Our main designated charities are:-
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
