Teva WeMake Campaign - Recap video

My name is Ufuk Aras, I work for Teva Germany in UIm.
My name is Samantha Hendrick and I work in Teva Pharmaceuticals, Ireland.
My name is Asma Akter, I'm from Amsterdam and I work here for 4 years now.
My name is Shachaf, and I've been working here at Teva Kfar Saba for almost a year.

My name is Arthur and I'm 31 years old. I'm sick with a disease that's called Huntington.
I have asthma from, as long as I can remember, I've always had it.
My name is Daniel Harding, I am a full time carer for my mother and my brother.
Migraine has been a very, very big part of my life since I can remember.

Huntington’s is a genetical disease.  My mother died form it 3 years ago.

My mom's condition Is blood and bone cancer. 
You know, it can be very difficult some days. 
It reminds me of myself.

Migraine is extremely debilitating, it affects not only myself, but my entire family.

With the right asthma plan you can do everything that you want to do.
Asthma doesn’t have to hold you back or stop you from doing things that you enjoy.
She is really active.
When I take this medication, it lets me be myself.

We are so grateful, for your dedication
And your work and your commitment
To help give us better qualities of life.
So thank you.
Thank you.
I just want to say a huge thank you to you, for everything you do for us.
I deserve and I want to be normal
And I want to say thank you
To whoever works and makes my life
A little bit better.
You're doing a great, great job. Love you.

It's very amazing video
It's very hard for me to see people struggling like this.
When I was 12 years old, my mom also had cancer
So I can imagine what he's feeling
And what he is going through.

I come to work every day and I'm really proud of what I do,
And I'm reminded of that now.
Seeing that video and doing this, today, like it's made me even prouder.

After seeing this video with Arthur,
I have more motivation to go to work and make quality medicine.
At the end of the day, the product we're making is for them
And we have to make sure that they are getting the quality they really need.
My biggest passion in life was to change people's life every day.
And in my work here, I feel like I'm actually doing it.
There's a reason I come to work every day,
It's to save lives, and to improve quality of life for people.
