Continued helping others

Codica family loves supporting different social initiatives and charity works. We have been helping the organization called "Orphans of Kharkiv" which is dedicated to supporting orphans and kids from families in need.

In 2019, our team supported the social organization to take kids for holidays to the Carpathian Mountains. Children spent time having many outdoors activities, swimming, drawing, singing, boosting their creativity. Finally, kids made lots of fond memories.

We try to support different social organizations and initiatives to make our world slightly better.

Kept our holidays’ traditions

At Codica, we have been following two traditions for many years - organizing a Secret Santa event and a photoshoot during the last working days of the current year. All employees get the name of their colleagues to prepare a gift for them and put it under our beautiful New Year’s tree. This game is completely anonymous.

As a result, our Codica family gathers together to share and enjoy the gifts, and to make some beautiful new-year photos.
