Since 2007 Alcochem has made Financial commitments to projects which are connected to the areas or markets in which Alcochem is active.
Alcochem has set up a few basic rules in which these commitments find their practical execution;
- Projects are set up in co-operation with the partners in the subjected area, where a common contribution should secure the involvement and dedication from both sides. Projects are linked to People (labour conditions) and Planet (environmental conditions)
- A protocol with all our production parties is signed in which no child labour is accepted in any way. This protocol will be controlled and monitored by our own local staff.
- Apart from the nature of the projects mentioned above we dedicate a part of our budget to support programs that are connected to the well-being of children (our future generations).

Alcochem supports Ukraine
Hospitals in Ukraine are faced with many shortages. Alcochem has therefore started an aid program. Together with Accolade Zorg and TR care, we have now supplied 40 beds and mattresses to the regional Psychoneurological hospital no.2 in Kiev. The beds were donated by Accolade Zorg and Alcochem donated the mattresses with a special discount from TR care.
We are confident that this will contribute to improving patient care in Ukraine.

Prince of Peace Children’s home China
With a vision not only to do business but to contribute to the future of our world, Alcochem will support the Prince of Peace Children’s home in Tianjin with supplies and materials needed for the children.
Prince of Peace Children’s home provide a home for abandoned children who are disabled, like Down syndrome and cerebral palsy. In 2021 over 150 children live in the Prince of Peace Children’s home with more than 130 teachers and employees taking care of them.
In 1994 Kenneth Yeung established the Prince of Peace Foundation in the U.S., to help American families that wanted to adopt orphans in China. In 1999, he decided to finance an orphanage to be built in China, to foster disabled orphans aged from 0 to 6. After 6 years of preparation, under the cooperation of Prince of Peace Foundation and Civil Administration Bureau of the Wuqing District of Tianjin, the Prince of Peace Children’s Home was built. On July 12, 2004, with an area of 60,000 sq. ft. and a capacity to accommodate 100 children aged under 6, the Children’s Home was officially opened.

Prince of Peace Charity Foundation is established with the aim of providing love and care to orphans and needy children; its missions include to finance the Prince of Peace Children’s Home in Tianjin, in order to have a warm and harmonious environment for growth.
Together with our partner Rotimax Cleaning Multiservices in Nigeria, we have realized a water supply in an area where there is a serious water shortage; Akure in Ondo State. With this project, we trust that we have been able to give something back to society that can change lives.
Since December 2019 Alcochem added a new charity program for people in medical need. This charity program is helping people in Poland to collect money for necessary expensive surgery or medicines. The foundation is focused mainly on children. Each month we donate directy to the charity goal we want to support.
Choice in Cambodia
UPDATE december 2022
Choice constructed a new water storage unit for safe water deliveries to squatter villages, which is sponsored by Alcochem.
Squatter villages are huts, build on the roadside. Some people who live there have never regained a property since the civil war. Some, mainly women and children, have been deserted or kicked out of the family home. Some have lost their homes through selling homes for medical procedures, banks repossessing their homes or gambling debts. Some are newly marrieds or people that cannot afford a home or rent. Some lost their job and cannot pay the rent.
The bore water in the squatter villages is contaminated with Arsenic, a natural toxin picked up by the river source from the Himalayas. A poison that kills after a number of years of consumption. As the people of the squatter villages are illegally residing on Government land, they cannot provide water tanks or pipe in water. The only option is the delivery. With the help of Alcochem, Choice has been able to provide safe drinking water since about 2012.
Choice has made several changes over the years. Choice sold the truck for the distribution of the 1000 liter tanks. The tank, full of water proved too heavy for the motorbike and it became too dangerous on the road.
At the moment of this update Choice is collecting the containers from the village, bring them to Choice and fill them up at their location. The load is not as heavy and more evenly spread. The trailer is also used for transporting children to and from school.
During the wet season from about April to October there are problems with road access. The good news about wet season is that the squatters collect rain water in urns. They hold about 500 liters. This water is drinkable but mainly used for bathing.
Choice has realized 2 taps that provide clean water in Angela Village. One crane at each end of the village. We assume that every family in the village can fill 3 containers of 25 liters each week for drinking and cooking.
On the website of Choice you can find some videos of the Village and the work of Choice. www.choice-cambodia.org/blog/photos-videos/videos
