Since its founding, CHERVON has strived to be a good and responsible corporate citizen, thereby benefitting our society and the world in which we work and live. Now we’re actively involved in social causes, including various short- and long-term projects such as our annual charity run, water cellar construction and post-earthquake reconstruction in close cooperation with non-profit organizations and institutions.
CHERVON recognizes and responds to our corporate social responsibilities to the world, our country and our communities. In 2013, we held the first CHERVON “Charity Run” to encourage our employees to exercise for health, while also supporting our joint social welfare undertakings. The “Charity Run” now occurs every spring. The proceeds from the event have been used to support “Water Cellar” project to benefit the drought-stricken area in western China, “Ya’an post-disaster school reconstruction” projects and other important endeavors. Our goal is to encourage more and more of our people to participate in philanthropy. Let’s “Run the Extra Mile!”
CHERVON officially kicked off our “Water Cellar” project in conjunction with the Amity Foundation to benefit the drought-stricken area in western China in 2013. Supported by contributions for CHERVON employees, 33 "Water Cellars" sponsored are now in Huajiang Villange and Qige Village, JiangYi municipal, Yuanmou County. Now, with the local rainfall increase, all the cellars are fully loaded and ready for future benefit. It is said one "Water Cellar" can hold 15 cubic meters of water. Fully loaded with water, a cellar will supply the water needed by 5 or 6 people for five months. This is crucial for those families to survive the dry season from winter to spring.
Our FLEX team in Germany actively participates in programs to support its local communities and sports clubs. FLEX sponsors a local handball team and youth soccer (TSG Steinheim) by providing them with sports attire and equipment. The trainer of the young soccer players is a FLEX employee.
On April 20th 2013, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake shook the city of Ya’an in Sichuan Province. Beautiful land was turned into ruins, hundreds of schools were destroyed and tens of thousands of students were without schools. In order to facilitate the children’s return to school as early as possible and provide a pleasant and secure environment for learning, CHERVON works with the “Tzu Chi Foundation,” an international humanitarian organization, to support the “Ya’an Post-Disaster School Reconstruction” Project.
