Moreover, Philips is celebrating the fact that it has improved the lives of 110 million people across the Middle East and Turkey in 2017, which accounts for more than one third of the entire population. This is aligned with the company’s vision to make the world healthier and more sustainable and to achieve the overall goal of improving 3 billion lives a year by 2025.
To continue achieving this goal, Philips and Dubai Cares, the UAE-based global philanthropic organization working towards providing children and young people in developing countries with access to quality education, have collaborated to promote healthy living among children in schools across the globe. The joint collaboration, which first started at the 2018 Arab Health Conference, encouraged visitors to visit the stand and select three causes to support by placing charity tokens in the respective cause box. These three causes included School Nutrition, School Health Awareness and Education as well as School Health Prevention programs. Philips had then doubled the total amount of funds raised.
