Main Topic In regards to healthcare, Drummond’s work has facilitated the construction of hospitals in La Jagua, Becerril and El Paso, as well as the expansion of the facilities in Chiriguaná, Bosconia, Fundación and Aracataca. Our contributions have included the construction and building of maternal and child care centers, healthcare centers, and the donation of the equipment for these medical centers. With regards to childhood nutrition, Drummond works with two partners, the Genesis Foundation (which serves more than 580 children in Magdalena) and with the Soy Doy Foundation in Cesar. Along with the Soy Doy Foundation, we are working on creating a soy-based plant to manufacture a product with high calorific and protein content. The plant, which will begin operating in Chiriguaná, will serve 600 children in the first year, with the possibility of expanding to 1,000 during following years. It is a program that seeks to be self-sustaining and to be managed by the community after the first five years. We also address nutrition at the child development centers managed by the Family Welfare Institute. 8 www.drummondltd.com Drummond’s social responsibility work at these centers is based on providing nutritional supplements for children ages 0 to 4, to ensure proper development. We have also contributed through financial donations to improve the technical conditions and infrastructure at these centers. SPORTS The company also supports programs that promote sports and fitness. “We believe that, to the extent that children have these kinds of activities, they stay away from the risks and dangers that the street can create for children who are idle,” says Alfredo Araújo. Consistently, year after year, we strengthen sports programs through providing equipment and uniforms and improving the fields and sports infrastructure which has allowed training academies to emerge, such as those that already exist in La Jagua or in La Loma. IMPROVING RELIGIOUS INFRASTRUCTURE As part of our respect for the traditions and values of the communities in our areas of Projects for the eradication of extreme poverty is one of the main objectives of Drummond’s social programs for 2015. The health of employees and communities nearby is also an important aspect of Drummond’s Social Responsibility program.
