Date:6/16/2011

ible for the Partnership to fund much needed services in the communities we serve."

"What a great opportunity to reach out to people,  some of whom are thousands of miles away from us, who don't even know us and have never experienced the comfort and quality of life that we take for granted each day," said Catheryne Majewski, Quality Assurance Manager at Roche. "The exciting part is that once Roche matches our contributions,  we will double our efforts to touch the lives of orphans in Malawi and families in US."

About the Roche Children's Walk

The Roche Children's Walk, originally the Roche Employee AIDS Walk, started in 2003 as a pilot project involving three Roche locations. It was inspired by employees concerned about the growing number of AIDS orphans in Africa and their desire to personally do something to help. The pilot walk was an overwhelmingly success: 1,300 employees participated and a total of 330,000 Swiss francs were raised. Since then it has continuously grown, and over seven million Swiss francs ($5.9 million US) were donated to support the AIDS orphans in Malawi.

Additionally, each year, the names of the top Roche fund-raisers from around the globe are entered into a drawing and several are selected to visit Malawi as company ambassadors. During their stay,  employees visit the orphan centers, speak to the children, local helpers and the European Coalition of Positive People (ECPP), and can see first-hand how the donations are being used. All return home inspired by what their dollars have helped build as well as a sense of the tremendous need to continue helping children in the region.

The International Day of the African Child
