We are extremely proud that our charity donation this month is going to Penny Appeal, a worthwhile cause chosen by our Technical Architect and Power Platform Practice Lead, Khurim Shabaz.
Penny Appeal was founded in 2009 by Adeem Younis to provide relief across Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Since then, the charity has transformed lives and filled entire communities with hope by offering emergency food, medical aid, water solutions and support for orphan care. Now operating in over 30 different countries, Penny Appeal is doing everything it can to break the poverty cycle.
Penny Appeal takes donations of small change, from just a few pence each day, and turns it into something that will make a big difference. The charity wants to ensure anyone interested in contributing to a cause has an affordable way to donate, whilst still making a huge impact. In 2021, Penny Appeal delivered more than seven million meals to those in need thanks to the donations received – one of many highlights for them last year.
Today, Penny Appeal is working on Thirst Relief, a project that is changing lives by providing clean water to those in need. So far, this appeal has provided clean water to over 300,000 people.
