Duroplastic is committed to being a responsible and contributing corporate citizen.

We are currently involved with 4 organisations:

St. Luke's Hospice

St Luke’s Hospice provides palliative care to people who are approaching the end of their lives. A team of skilled professional staff
and volunteers improves the quality of life of these patients through early identification, impeccable assessment and treatment of
pain and the other physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the patients and their families. This is given, irrespective of the
patient’s ability to pay for the service.

always been in animal welfare, adopting rescue dogs of their own as well as assisting different welfare organizations but when they
found Lucky Lucy their visions changed.
