In 2016, a group of OPHARDT hygiene employees came together to found RESPONSIBILITY e.V. The goal of the RESPONSIBILITY Club centres around supporting communities around the world by providing life saving medical tools where they are needed most.
The inaugural project of the RESPONSIBILITY Club was to provide a much needed ambulance car to the General Trias Medicare Hospital located on the southwestern outskirts of Manila—a community located nearby our Cavite, Philippines manufacturing location.
Through donations from employees and fundraising activities throughout the year, the RESPONSIBILITY Club was able to successfully raise the $20,000 USD necessary to purchase the fully equipped ambulance car. The ambulance was officially donated in December, 2017.
