ActionAid Haiti : To become involved visit http://www.actionaid.org – Since the start of ActionAid in Roseaux, Haiti in 2007, MACS Software has supported this community through the “Child Sponsorship Programme” – the motto being “Child Sponsorship puts a smile on children’s faces”. ActionAid is working in Roseaux because the majority of the population has an income level of just US$100 per year due to a decline in local agricultural production. In addition, there was no access to safe drinking water, education or health care.
We are very proud of our support of ActionAid, with whom we also work in Uganda.
Here is a letter from our sponsored child…Joseph Naica………..
Good morning my friend!
How are you doing?
For me everything is good!
My father is a farmer, he’s taking care of animals
like: pig, fowl, cow, goat. He leads them to
the river to drink. Among all those animals my
favourite is cow.
Was a pleasure to write you!
Thank you so much!
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.
