PharmaCARE (We CARE about YOUR health®) is one of the world’s most successful pharmaceutical companies, enjoying a
reputation as a caring, ethical and well-run company that produces high-quality products that save millions of lives and
enhance the quality of life for millions of others. The company offers free and discounted drugs to low-income consumers,
has a foundation that sponsors healthcare educational programs and scholarships, and its CEO serves on the PhRMA board.
PharmaCARE recently launched a new initiative, We CARE about YOUR world®, pledging its commitment to the environment
through recycling, packaging changes and other green initiatives, despite the fact that the company’s lobbying efforts
and PAC have successfully defeated environmental laws and regulations, including extension of the Superfund tax, which
was created by Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).
Based in New Jersey, PharmaCARE maintains a large manufacturing facility in the African nation of Colberia, where the
company has found several “healers” eager to freely share information about indigenous cures and an abundance of
Colberians willing to work for $1.00 a day, harvesting plants by walking five (5) miles into and out of the jungle
carrying baskets that, when full, weigh up to fifty (50) pounds. Due to the low standard of living in Colberia, much of
the population lives in primitive huts with no electricity or running water. PharmaCARE’s executives, however, live in a
luxury compound, complete with a swimming pool, tennis courts, and a golf course. PharmaCARE’s extensive activities in
Colberia have destroyed habitat and endangered native species.
