ActionAid Uganda: To become involved visit http://www.actionaid.org. ActionAid commenced activities in Uganda in 1982. MACS Software supports the community in the Nebbi district through the “Child Sponsorship Programme” – the motto being “Child Sponsorship puts a smile on children’s faces”.
Attached is the latest photo and update from Kevine from Nebbi, Uganda. In this update Kevine explains that she is enjoying her time at school and that her favourite subject is social studies. Kevine also places a great emphasis on the help she must give her parents after the school day. One of her main duties is fetching water for her mother from the “protected” spring.
MACS Software Ltd. is an active supporter of Action Aid in both Uganda and Haiti, where our software helps distribute important medicines to the local people.
Earlier this year, following a devastating earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreak, MACS sent in reinforcements to get the SCMS (a delivery partner for USAID) warehouse, which despatches vital antiviral drugs, back to full operational capacity.
We all celebrated MACS Software’s 21st birthday recently with a staff trip to the Sutton Elms Go-Karting circuit in Leicestershire in order to let off a little steam. Some of the team showed a natural aptitude for thrashing around a race track – a far cry from our day jobs designing software for some of the world’s leading corporations.
