Sanofi Turkey recently celebrated their 2nd Sanofi Children’s Day, which focused on the health of employees and their children. This initiative followed Turkey’s official National Sovereignty and Children’s Day. Approximately 100 children participated in the day, with many activities designed for them, including “Healthy Teeth” awareness and other wellness activities, supported by Enfants de Sanofi.
Sanofi employees are already looking forward to next year’s Children’s Day which is now becoming a tradition in Sanofi Turkey.
