We hoped you enjoyed Chemexpo 2023 as much as we did. This show was special for us, at this was our first show in India! We appreciate all of you who took the time to vistion our booth. Once again, thanks and we will be in touch shortly.
Do you know that no less than 1 million Dutch people suffer from a rare disorder and that the majority, more than 80%, are children? Many of these disorders are often still unknown to doctors which makes timely recognition not only very difficult, but in many cases it even leads to a (too) late diagnosis with all the unpleasant and risky consequences that entails.
Many parents do not feel heard, simply because there is more attention and care for the “known” conditions. In addition, there is no treatment plan for most rare disorders, so don’t be alarmed, as many as 30% of these children die before their 5th birthday. You will undoubtedly agree with us: we have to do something about this!
On February 12, a delegation from KH Chemicals participated in “Spinning for Sophia” to raise as much money as possible for this great initiative. At the time of writing, a total of EUR 457,021 has been raised, a wonderful amount that undoubtedly helped the Center for Rare Disorders of the Erasmus MC Sophia Children’s Hospital. By concentrating treatments, more intensive collaboration and intensive research, solutions can be sought more quickly and effectively and new medicines can be developed more quickly. KH Chemicals is happy and proud to once again have made this edition, together with all the other participants, a resounding success. See you next year Spinning for Sophia!
Can you imagine what it would be like to hear the clock ticking at home one more time? Or to go to the sea one last time? Maybe a concert or festival for the very last time and then never again? Exactly, that is hardly imaginable. Yet there are people for whom this is the harsh reality because they are terminal and hardly mobile. They do not have long to live and can hardly be transported in a “normal way”.
The Stichting Ambulance Wens fulfills the last wishes of these people through ambulances specially designed for this charity, equipped with, among other things, an extra comfortable stretcher and windows around the vehicle. In addition, it is ensured that skilled and medically trained personnel accompany you on such a day. And there is no sitting still: the foundation fulfills no fewer than five to seven wishes per day, bringing the counter to a total of more than 19,000 fulfilled wishes!
All these wishes are fulfilled free of charge, the costs for everyone in the ambulance are fully borne by the foundation. In the ambulances there is not only room for the patient and the medical staff, family members and/or friends have also been thought of, for this there is room for two people. If there are still people who think that the foundation only arranges transport, we want to disprove this immediately: they arrange the entire wish, so both transport and any entrance tickets, meet and greets and food and drinks. In short, a fantastic initiative that KH Chemicals was happy to support by participating in the spinning marathon organized by students of the Commercial Economics SportMarketing and Management course.
Cape Verde is known to many for its luxurious hotels, white sandy beaches and a beautiful, clear sea full of fantastically colored fish. Unfortunately, it also has another, perhaps less well-known, side. Due to a structural lack of money and resources, disabled people in Cape Verde live in social isolation and are severely limited in their (social) development.
KH Chemicals would like to help and improve the living conditions of these people. For that reason it has made every effort to collect aids such as wheelchairs, walkers and rollators. In fact, anything that could improve the mobility of these people was very welcome.
Together with a couple of (logistical) partners, KH Chemicals built a logistics network that arranged the transport of all the items. A fantastic initiative that once again emphasizes the slogan “It’s all about people”. As far as we are concerned, these partners deserve a very big compliment, our special thanks go to:
The hospital Regional Hospital, the nursing home Lar Da Terceira Idade and the kindergarten Centro Infantil Ponta do Sol will be made happy with the collected items. The ones involved are incredibly happy with our support and have indicated that the lives of many disabled people can be made easier. We can’t get a nicer compliment than that. Therefore, on behalf of all the people of Project KV: thank you very much for your help!
The Asia Pacific Coatings Show is the leading event in South East Asia and the Pacific Rim for the coatings industry. This year KH will be participating as well. We would like to welcome you at our booth C51!!
