Charity - Corporate Social Responsibility
As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility Programme, this year Deloitte supported children with serious blood diseases at the Oncology Ward of the Baganashyl Children’s State Hospital. Doing so, we targeted not only helping the children directly with gifts, but also raising awareness of social responsibility among our employees. As a result of everyone’s donations we were able to raise a total of KZT 1,420,000 (USD 7,717) for the hospital.
