One Life! Charity
“Don’t confuse having a career
with having a life.”
We try to make good things happen. This is the core value of HR One Group.
We care about people and try to make a difference through donating. In this way, we show our appreciation for those people who work hard behind the scenes of so many valuable foundations, societies and charity organisation. And we care about their cause.
All our projects are fully supported by our team members and are thoroughly debated and analysed before taken on on a long term basis.
Let us know if you have a project that is close to your heart.
Project Hope Village Windhoek, Namibia
HR One Group is proud to sponsor the Soroptimist Sint-Truiden (Belgium), Christel Dekeye and artist Raf Roefflaer in their efforts to raise money for the orphanage Hope Village in Windhoek (katutura).
Hope Village helps children who are victims of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The orphanage creates a home for the children, provides medical care and gives them an education so that they have a chance for a better future.
Cystic Fibrosis Federation – Muco Vereniging
The cystic fibrosis federation of Belgium supports patients, their families, caregivers and health centers to strive for a longer and happier life for all patients. The federation’s goal and top priority is to help children, adolescents and adults suffering from cystic fibrosis in their daily fight against this disease.
HR One Group has great admiration for Katelijne Vandenbroeck, Belgian native and mother of a young adult with cystic fibrosis. She is a finisher of the 20 km of Brussels, collecting donations for further research & development. Currently, she is training for the New York Marathon.
HR One Group is in awe of a great woman in medicine, Prof Dr. Marijke Proesmans. She is a lecturer at the University of Leuven, pediatrician & pneumonologist, expert clinician in cystic fibrosis, who has dedicated her professional life to guiding her patients to achieve longer life expectancy.
Demoucelle Parkinson Charity
Since at least two members of the extended HR One Group family suffer from a mild or more severe stage of Parkinson's, it comes as no surprise that we contribute to the Demoucelle Parkinson Charity to stimulate research & development in order to find a cure for this neurological condition.
We have enthusiastically sponsored Patrick who runs for Parkinson's. Ten years ago, Patrick, who was diagnosed on his 40th birthday with Parkinson's, decided to never give up. His goal to raise money and to run and finish the 20 km of Brussels, an enormous challenge given his condition, has touched us deeply. We are a fan!
Malaysia Charlty for needy
Dato’ Dr. Prakash Rao is our general physician at Ampang Medical Center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He organizes an annual fund raiser for the needy with his organization PKKTM. The reason why HR One Group decided to sponsor this initiative in 2015 is the fact that Dr. Prakash spares no effort or energy in medically assisting the poor in his daily medical practice. Moreover, he focuses on helping all who are in need in Malaysia, regardless of race or background.
The night of the benefit concert reunited both needy people and their donors, enjoying together the performance of world-class Indian singer, Ugadi Geetanjali.
Refugee Children of Myanmar
In Malaysia alone, there are about 70 schools where children of Burmese refugees can attend some form of education, run by UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees).
HR One Group is involved in supporting pro-bono teachers, who are actively involved in these educational initiatives. These individuals teach English, Math and Science to refugee children, who are typically between 5 and 16 years of age.
We are especially grateful to Melanie Gehman (USA) and Alice Been (UK) for being excellent pro-bono teachers and caregivers.
