Work side by side with your team colleagues for a beautiful non-profit organization!

Donate your time and talent to a worthy cause. Roll up your sleeves to do good by helping a non-profit organization. Find out more about the organizations that are looking forward to receiving a helping hand from MSD Belux voluntary teams on Wednesday September 8, 2021.

For the 7th time in a row, MSD Belux has been organizing an MSD Belux Gives Back Day, mobilizing all its employees to do voluntary work for 1 day. On 8 September, 180 MSD Belux colleagues worked side by side and rolled up their sleeves for no less than 10 Belgian social projects.

It was an impressive gathering of our teams where sharing, empowering, learning from each other and cross-divisional networking were on the agenda. The MSD Belux colleagues didn’t let Covid-19 spoil their day! With volunteers like them, we have a chance to make this world a better place. We thank them for their hard work!

I’m always looking forward to the yearly MSD Gives Back Day. That day reminds me how many people and organizations are in need for help, also in Belgium. It provides the opportunity to connect in another way to the community in which we live and to help to make it a better place. Moreover, it is a great way to connect with the MSD colleagues and to make together a difference in somebody’s live … Impressive what hidden talents we have at MSD!

I find a day during which you donate your time and energy as being very rewarding and important to do. It allows you to discover a new environment and reality within our community. And after a full day supporting a project that needs external help, you feel energized and satisfied of the accomplished work. I see it as well as a teambuilding moment, where you create interesting and often funny interactions with the colleagues. I am really looking forward to next event! Laurent

Last year I participated for the first time and even though we got rained upon during the whole day, it felt so good to be part of this brilliant initiative. Working together with many colleagues, sharing an important project together, helping our community and having a positive impact on the future of people. I’m very proud to be part of MSD, whose societal impact goes beyond our state of the art products but the fact that we come together as one, roll up our sleeves during the MSD Gives Back-day, so we can, together, make a difference in the lives of others makes us unique as an organization. This day is marked bright yellow in my calendar and I count on the participation and engagement of all colleagues. See you there!

Corona proof

During the MSD Gives Back Day, we respected and applied the Corona measures & rules of the Belgian Consultative Committee as well as the local authorities.

Au nom de Natagora et en tant que conservateur de la réserve Naturelle de Nysdam, je tiens à remercier chaleureusement tous les employés de MSD pour le travail accompli. Après avoir démarré dans des conditions extrêmes le lundi 28/09 où la dizaine de bénévoles ont affronté avec le sourire la pluie pendant 5 heures continues pour ensuite poursuivre avec 2 jours de temps secs, nous sommes parvenus à réaliser les objectifs attendus. Le maître mot de ces 3 jours étaient « maintenir les milieux ouverts (prairie de fauche, lande à bruyère, pâtures) » pour garder une diversité de milieux et éviter que la forêt ne reprenne ses droits. Nous y sommes arrivés malgré des tâches parfois bien physiques et ce grâce au dynamisme et à la bonne humeur continue des employés de MSD.

Merci beaucoup ! Etienne

Je tenais à vous remercier pour votre organisation qui est, comme toujours, efficace, sympathique. Un tout grand merci aux donneurs de temps de la société MSD. Toutes les missions ont été accomplies avec succès. Merci, car sans votre aide il nous aurait fallu beaucoup de temps pour y arriver seuls. Ces deux journées étaient dans une bonne ambiance et vous étiez super sympathiques. En espérant pouvoir vous accueillir l’année prochaine.

Belle journée à tous et toutes. Martine

Nous tenons à sincèrement remercier toute l'équipe de bénévoles qui ont participé à notre projet de l'installation d'une nouvelle clôture dans notre verger. Toute l'équipe s'est aussi attelée à ratisser le sol et à le mettre à niveau, pour ensuite y faire des trous afin d'y planter nos futurs châtaigniers et nos noisetiers. Ce fut une journée merveilleuse, pleine de partage dans l'élaboration d'un projet qui grâce à tous a pu être réalisé jusqu'au bout.
