Story

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.

Computing is supporting Computer Aid International's work to deliver health services to the people of rural East Africa by providing IT equipment, training and support to doctors in rural areas.

Supported by Computing, the introduction of basic laptops, digital cameras and scanners, together with an internet connection, has already connected rural doctors in 40 hospitals with specialists to help them diagnose and treat patients. This work has already saved lives and helped countless people gain access to top class medical care.

The task now is to roll this programme out to benefit a further 80 hospitals across Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.

It costs just £965 to fully kit out a hospital and train doctors through this programme. Every penny you contribute through this page will help another hospital. So please give generously.

If you, or your company, can sponsor a full telemedicine kit you'll join Computing's Roll of Honour in the pages of the magazine. Computer Aid will also be happy to show you where your support has gone. If you would like to know more, please contact maurizio@computeraid.org.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor the project: Computer Aid International gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

So please sponsor this project now!

And please don't forget to help us spread the word by forwarding this page to your friends and colleagues.

Thank you very much for your support,

The Computing Team
