Amman, 5 July 2015 – Hikma Pharmaceuticals, the fast growing multinational pharmaceutical group, signed a partnership agreement on Wednesday July 1st supporting the “Open Days” program which is part of the “Museum for All” initiative. As part of its objectives to be accessible to as many children as possible, this initiative provides either free or subsidized access through different platforms available to the Jordanian community. This support comes from Hikma Pharmaceuticals’ belief in the Children’s Museum Jordan’s educational mission and the important role it plays in spreading the experience of hands-on learning.
Hana Darwazeh Ramadan, Hikma’s Vice President of Corporate Communication said, “We are very pleased to take our partnership with the Children’s Museum Jordan to the next level by supporting the Open Days. We believe in the goals of this platform which focuses on education in an interactive and lively manner in regards to the children and which is aligned with our goals.” Ramadan asserted that the company’s corporate responsibility is concerned with supporting local communities and creating a better future for today’s children.
“Our partnership with Hikma Pharmaceuticals is a well-established partnership, and this agreement is an extension of our partnership to support UNRWA schools’ visit program. We are very proud that a prestigious national corporation such as Hikma Pharmaceuticals is putting so much effort in social responsibility towards the Jordanian local society and its children” said the Children’s Museum Jordan’s Director, Sawsan Dalaq.
The “Open Day” program has provided free access to the Museum to over 177,000 visitors since it was launched in 2010. The Open Days are held on the first Friday of every month and are available to all families and their children wishing to visit the Children Museum Jordan.
