Computer Aid continued its successful partnership with Computing and the British Computer Society taking part in the 2010 UK IT Industry Awards as the official charity. The Awards, jointly hosted by Computing and the BCS and known as the Oscars of the IT Industry, recognise excellence in the field and showcase the often overlooked benefits provided by the IT industry and IT professionals to the economy and public services of the United Kingdom.
A high-value raffle was held with guests and nominees representing the industry digging deep to raise a cool £10,254 for our East African telemedicine project (watch film of the project on YouTube). The proceeds will be used to equip 10 hospitals in the region with telemedicine equipment and training. Computing Editor Abigail Waraker commented: "This project saves lives, by proving doctors and nurses in rural parts of Africa with IT equipment they need to make accurate, speedy diagnosis for their patients and has the ability to benefit some of the world’s poorest people".
