We have established partnerships with organizations that are committed to community development, and that work with people living in socially vulnerable situations. In a constant search to improve our processes and investment decisions, in 2019 we started using the consultancy services of Instituto Phi-Philantropia Inteligente. The Phi Institute, as it is known, has its own methodology for identifying opportunities, which it selects in accordance with our current social investment policy. It also accompanies, monitors and measures the social impact achieved with the resources we allocate.
Since 2005 Aché’s drug donation policy has been helping the NGO Amigos do Bem [Friends of Good]. More than 7000 units of medicine were donated in 2019 to towns and cities in the states of Pernambuco, Ceará and Alagoas. The company has also been helping the Floravida Institute since 2018, and in 2019 we donated more than 3000 units of medicine to help the people of Parnaíba, in Piauí.
