Supporting the development of local communities
We believe health and education are two important parts in shaping a responsible society, therefore the CSR projects sustained by JD Agro Cocora are defined by the care towards people, by unfolding some reconstruction of medical clinics, schools and kindergardens, offering people the chance for a better life.
Consequently, in January 2019 we started an extensive project of reconstruction of the medical clinic in Reviga, Ialomița county, by replacing the old roof of the building with a new modern and durable one. Then, furniture and medical equipment were aquired so as to the medical clinic became functional and the medical care activity can be performed in optimal conditions from now on.

“A healthy heart caravan” – the most important CSR project conducted by our company so far, by which we were able to offer medical assistance to the elderly and the ones in need, people who do not have access to medical services offered at European standards.
The project “A healthy heart caravan” was initially planned for a number of 160 patients, but the requests on the spot were far too many, so that in the end the project included approximatively 200 patients within 3 communes. The project was carried out at our farm in Cocora.
This was an extremely vital project for local communities in Ialomița county that have been deprived for years of the possibility to benefit from medical check-ups and treatments given by specialist doctors.
The association “The caravan with doctors” brought high-performance medical equipment needed for medical check-ups performed at European standards. First part of medical project “ A healthy heart caravan” included a complete set of blood test and the second part focused on check-up and diagnosis. Patients diagnosed with different medical disorders, received medical letters from the specialist doctors in order to benefit from appropriate treatments.
