Social responsibility - a component of success

Social responsibility is a necessary component of success. Mindful of its obligations, Sika Thailand actively engages in sustainable and humanitarian development projects in Thailand. Through the Romuald Burkard Foundation, Sika Thailand supports Operation Smile Thailand to provide free medical treatment for children with facial deformities and to bring them new lives and a new future.

Sika Thailand supported Operation Smile Thailand to conduct the weekly medical mission in Maesot, Tak during 02-07 November 2014. 156 patients (from cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities) were screened and 107 patients (110 procedures) received free surgeries. In addition to the financial support, Sika staff volunteers during the mission in order to assist Operation Smile Thailand and its medical teams in coordinating logistic works.

Sika Thailand is proud to be able to continues its commitment in 2015. The medical mission will once again take place in Tak, northern Thailand, in the first week of November.

Operations Smile Thailand

Operation Smile Thailand is an NGO set up in 2001, as part of Operation Smile International dedicated to providing free treatment to children and adults suffering from cleft lips and cleft palates. Operation Smile Thailand has treated over 7,000 children with an average of 10 surgical missions per year in most rural areas as well as medical missions to neighboring countries, Laos and Myanmar.

With this mission, Operation Smile Thailand is looking for additional financial support and volunteer to change a child’s life as much as possible.
