We are continually focusing on:

As part of HLB's global CSR initiative, #HLBCommunities Day took place on Friday, June 2nd, 2023. This event provided us with an opportunity to express our gratitude to the communities in which we live and work.
This year, our dedicated team visited sick children in the Pediatric service at Cheiko Hospital in Balbala. Our objective was to make a positive impact on the lives of these courageous children during their challenging time at the hospital.
