02 Mar Zeulab collaborates with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation
At Zeulab we believe that cooperation, solidarity and development must be fundamental pillars in business philosophy. For this reason, for years, we have been collaborating with different NGOs transmitting our commitment to eradicate the inequalities and mobilize consciousness as well.
This year, the cooperation will take place with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation; NGOs committed to the improvement of the living conditions of the most disadvantaged communities in India.
India is a very complex country where more than 1,295 million people. According to the World Bank about 300 million people live under the poverty line, i.e., on less than $1.25 a day. The FVF works on the causes of the problems and collaborates with communities to provide sustainable solutions that meet the real needs of the population.
The main areas of activity of the Foundation are the States of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, but over the years they have expanded their intervention to new areas within those States, making it so their project benefit more people living in extreme poverty every day.
In addition, the general objective of the FVF Health Sector to provide access to a proper healthcare network proper, to medicines and the infrastructure necessary to improve the quality of life in the most disadvantaged populations.
In Zeulab we know very well how important the use of antibiotics can be on many occasions, in the same way that we are very aware of the importance that its correct use has.
The detection of antibiotics as well as avoiding the abusive use of them, can prevent serious damage to human and animal health.
The voices in the scientific and medical fields that warn of the real risk posed by the growing ineffectiveness of some of the major antibiotics due to the development of antibioresistance in bacteria that cause disease are numerous.
So much so that the World Health Organization considers this problem amongst the three most serious health risks which humanity must face in the coming decades.
EXPLORER 2.0 is a qualitative diagnostic kit that allows the detection of inhibitory substances in a range of food and matrices (meat, liver, kidney, eggs or feed). The test is based on the inhibition of microbial growth and allows to differentiate from a simple and quick way of samples containing Antimicrobial residues above the limits of detection of the test.
In the framework of our cooperation with the FVF, our commitment will be donate €1 for every sale of this kit, joining in this way our efforts to combat all these issues.
