Social Responsibility of InstaForex
Social responsibility of InstaForex is the way we see the work of a real modern company which does not forget about simple human principles even in terms of severe competition and uncompromising struggle between the market participants. According to these tenets, social responsibility must be an unalienable part of any large-scale company led by people who are able to feel for somebody.
We do not aim at making a dominant name or initiate a PR-campaign extending aid to the needy. InstaForex Company’s support foreign charity institutions is not an attempt to earn fame or advance rating among the rivals. As it was already said, social responsibility of InstaForex is the way we see an up-to-date company and the work principles which it has to follow.
For a few years already, more and more charity organizations and private individuals have became InstaForex Company partners. The list of charity organizations and volunteers will be constantly up-dated on this page meant for reflecting the concept of social responsibility in InstaForex Company. In such a way, we help and suppose it to be necessary to back up charity institutions and simple people who lend a real support to medicine, education and those who sort out these social problems.
Nowadays, more than 290 million children worldwide cannot get an education due to an increased number of students in schools, distant locations of educational organizations, or a lack of infrastructure.
The Thinking Huts fund helps solve the global shortage of educational organizations by means of innovative technology, namely construction 3D printing.
While traditional construction methods take months or even years, 3D printing shortens this period to one week, thus considerably reducing spending.
In the spring of 2022, Thinking Huts presented its first completed project. A school built by means of 3D printing opened its doors to 2,500 students in the city of Fianarantsoa, Madagascar.
This region was chosen as a launching pad for a particular reason. The fact is that 45% of children, who live on the island, do not attend school. Thinking Huts considers as a priority those countries where the need for educational organizations is especially acute.
Our company has also participated in this noble mission. Together with Thinking Huts, InstaForex strives to make education more available since it is the key to a better children’s life and a basis for the sustainable development of society.
Most of the patients come from other states such as Terengganu and Pahang.
The way to the hospital takes more than 2 hours, and most children are from low-income families.
Moreover, the cost of treatment is high.
Parents cannot afford to visit their children constantly.
But in 2019, the problem of many families was solved.
At the USM Hospital in Kelantan, a comfortable house has been built for families of children who need treatment.
Now, parents and children can be together during therapy, which has a positive effect on the health of children.
Our company regularly participates in various charity events and projects that require financial aid and other forms of support. This time we chose to cooperate with Peduli Anak, an independent non-governmental organization which was founded in the Netherlands and expanded into Indonesia. For the past 15 years, the foundation has been working to improve the children’s lives and provide them not only with accommodation, but home comfort. Thousands of children receive education, medical help, and legal advice.
Peduli Anak is actively engaged in various projects across Indonesia. A large development center for children from low-income families has been built on Lombok Island. There are three orphanages, an elementary school, a kindergarten, a technical school, and a medical center.
Today, we can also feel our involvement in a good deed. We get a huge reward in the form of acknowledgement from the organization and feel good that our contribution helps children to recover and restore their ability to laugh again.
My second sister left school when she was 9 years old and then tried hard to make some money to feed me and my grandmother and take medical care of my grandmother.
The roof of the house where we lived was broken. We slept under the rain because the roof of the house was licking.
When I was young, I had difficulties to get to school. I went to school on my knees and my hands when the sun was burning, I also got under heavy rain in rainy seasons. I never had school uniform and school bag like other children.
I created CPOC because I don't want to see children having hard life and sad life like when I was young. I want them to have enough food, good roof, go to school and live a healthy life.
The main reason of creation CPOC is that I want to give them good life now and gift bright future for their families. Now I rent a house to run the CPOC center project. In the future we plan to build the house for children, computer school, library, animal farm and vegetable farm, as well as university for poor student and cover their expenses for university fee.
The money that comes into the fund will be used to provide temporary shelters for those who had to leave their homes, as well as medical care, food supplies and access to clean water.

MSF was established in Paris in 1971 as non-commercial and self-regulated entity. The basic principles of its functioning are enclosed in the MSF Charter. Today MSF is a worldwide movement including 23 associations. The organization is 90% financed by private funds.
Thousands of medical as well as administrative professionals are working in MSF. The great majority of MSF medical workers are from the countries, where the organization is providing aid. All in all, people from 60 countries of the world are the team of MSF.
MSF are against the opinion that population of poor countries can only get low level of medical service, it tends to provide high quality of care after all patients. In 1999, when MSF was awarded Nobel Prize, the organization declared that the money which was received together with the award, will be spent for educational work concerning curing the illnesses spread in poor countries.
Recently, MSF pays much attention to the problems of citizens from countries of the third world, who live in slums without any medical services at all. For example, Bangladesh and its capital Dacca, where 80% of the population live in slums without clear water, electricity etc. MSF could not stay away from this severe problem, and in 2010 opened in the slum district Kamrangirchar of the Bangladesh capital Dacca a centre for health and nutrition, which has by now become home for 400,000 people. At the moment MSF continues working in this direction, helping people, who live in slums, to receive medical treatment. MSF is opening new centres not only in Bangladesh, but in other countries, where the issue of extremely low living standard is as much critical. You can find out more about the programs of MSF at the official website of the organization.
InstaForex deems it its duty to help the organization Médecins Sans Frontières, and consequently, all people who are deprived of due medical care. Doing this we consider, that people of the poorest nations, who live in the countries involved in military actions, can obtain a chance to be healthy.
The woman who managed to stay alive was directed to the rehabilitation center for people with back injuries. Despite that it was not what she needed exactly but there were no funds for effective treatment abroad. Irina has no father, and after the accident, her mother abandoned her. Only her friends and compassionates were helping her. Charitable bank accounts for rehabilitation funds transferring were opened.
Irina was persuaded to take part in Miss Insta Asia beauty contest 2009, arranged by InstaForex Company. Due to a great number of not indifferent people who voted for the woman, she took the first place. The obtained money prize has become an essential contribution to her recovery. More than 2 years have passed after the accident and for this time due to every day trainings and will power Ira can stand 10 minutes vertically, raise hands from knees for a while, toughen muscles of legs and belly. And this is a really huge process and victory indeed.
The relatives supporting her have no chance to help her as this requires considerable financial expenses. Now she lives with her 6-years old son, mother and grandmother, whose salary, pension and alimony payments for the son are spent for medicines.
Medical treatment is possible only abroad, in local health clinics only Analgin can be offered. By virtue of other people’s mercy and, in particular, InstaForex Company, the funds were raised and now the negotiations with the clinics in Germany, which is ready to tackle the main decease - mite-borne Lyme-borreliosis - are held.
