Steroplast Healthcare owner Adam Brown talks here about why working with charitable campaigns and organisations is so important at Steroplast and our own contribution to changing Ugandan childrens’ lives with the Steroplast Healthcare Foundation.
As one of the biggest healthcare labels in the UK, it is our responsibility to do all we can to push forward the availability of life-altering healthcare for those who need to live more comfortably, sustainably, and independently. We aim to use our influence and capabilities as forces for good and act as a guiding hand supporting those who share in our vision.
The foundation was first established in August 1990.
The Foundation was built on the success of the Young Childrens’ Perpetual Charity (Registered 1000352), set up by my parents in August 1990 in memory of my sister, Samantha Louise (16.11.61—16.2.62). When I took up the position of MD at Steroplast, I knew it was vital I carry on the momentum of my parents' charitable work.
At the time, a visit to Uganda and Kenya would give me an experience that would alter the future of the Steroplast Healthcare Foundation, carrying on the good work of my parents. Meeting local children taught me just how precious education is to so many young people. How it can change their lives. How it can provide futures filled with opportunity and joy.
Back in the UK, and resolved to make that future a possibility for some of the children I met, I developed the Steroplast Healthcare Foundation to give children in Africa the invaluable opportunity of an education.
