HP has donated 16 PCs and other equipment valued at over US$26,000 to SOS Children’s Villages, a Lebanese charity and welfare organization. The kit, which includes PCs, printers, monitors and digital cameras, will be used to help manage day-to-day work activities of on-going projects as well as assisting future expansion plans.

SOS Children’s Village offers help to children in need. It aims to help them shape their own future and share in the development of their communities. In particular, the charity focuses on placing orphaned and abandoned children within a family in a village environment. The charity runs three Children’s Villages for over 300 children under the age of 15. A fourth Village is under construction in Ksarnaba, which will open its doors to a further 150 children in 2004.

Amr Salem, general manager & ESG country manager for HP GEM (Gulf & Eastern Mediterranean) says that “over the past 32 years, the Lebanese Association of SOS Children’s Villages has established an impressive network of facilities and support teams to serve the vulnerable and under-privileged communities of Lebanon. The proposed expansion of this network will bring the charity’s vital services to even more families in the country, and Hewlett-Packard recognize the commitment they are making.”

“The donation of 16 PCs and other equipment we have made to SOS will hopefully ensure the charity is run and managed more efficiently, thus freeing up resource to maintain the important work the charity has established over the last 32 years,” he adds.
