Christmas Giving 2020 (Part 4!)

Mon, 23/12/2019 - 10:27am

The final details..

Christmas is almost upon us and this is my final update on IS Oxford's Christmas Giving.

For the 16th year running each member of our team gets to spend £200 of company profits on good gifts at Christmas.

We are paying for the delivery of 600 warm knitted items to Syrian and Iranian refugees to help them during the cold winter in Kurdistan camps.

We are also supplying 5 village loos in Sierra Leone, 7 drip irrigation systems and one deep pump for African villagers.

We have provided three goats for families in war torn regions. Goats are milk and fertiliser factories, improve local diets and help towards self-sufficiency.

We are also providing 70 mango trees, which ensure crops that are delicious, reliable, drought-resistant and will provide income for generations. And apparently they look terrific...

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christmas Giving 2020 (Part 2!)

Mon, 23/12/2019 - 10:23am

More donations!

We’ve been giving every staff member £200 to spend on charitable causes each Christmas for the last 16 years.

Here is more of what we chose…

We have funded a portable pharmacy in rural Africa and Asia, where access to healthcare hardly exists. This will enable doctors to treat up to 1,500 patients in remote emergency health camps, with pain killers, antibiotics, eye drops, ointments, creams, diuretics, water purification tablets and more. The pharmacy, which would normally cost £4,000, is donated by UK pharmaceutical companies and costs only £400 to assemble and deliver. Naturally, it’s a godsend in war zones, such as Yemen.

We are providing operations that correct cataract, trachoma and other blinding conditions for two children and five adults in Africa and providing medical treatment that will protect 2000 people from River Blindness and Elephantiasis.

We are also providing medicine to de-worm 2000 children in Africa and paying for midwives to attend two births to ensure safe deliveries.

We are really proud that profits from our business here can go to such good causes.
