Towards the end of 2015 CCI was approached by Appco Group Asia, part of the Appco Group which has more than 800 locations in 29 countries. They had seen our website and were impressed with our program, suggesting they support us as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in 2016.
Appco buys products from local home industries, in this case Central Java, and sells the products throughout Indonesia, both in stores and on-line, donating 15% of profits to various charities. At the beginning of their project in Indonesia there were 3 people, now there are more than 20 producing the high quality merchandise. So the company is supporting local home industries and also local charities, in this case the Cleft Care Foundation. And as their sales increase CCI will also benefit more.
Recently we received our first donation, Rp62,268,500. This will cover the costs of the whole package of care for 13 children!
Thank you Appco Group Asia! Together we will continue to create more smiles for Indonesian cleft children.
