Making it Happen with Just 100 USD!

Over this past holiday season, Computer Frontiers Inc. gave each staff person $100 to give away those in need. All of the employees where touched by this opportunity to give, as well as the various recipients who received the donation. The heartwarming stories will be shared in hope that those who read and hear of the acts of kindness will be blessed by it too. 

Please read below about the families and farmers that Tonny of CFI staff chose to give the money to.

Twelve families located in a remote area of Mpigi district had no hope of celebrating this year’s Christmas. With just 100 USD, they had reasons to smile.For years, these families have been depending of agriculture as a main source of income. During the course of 2013, the land owner halted further farming activities on his property. This greatly affected their income hence making it hard for them to survive.

They jumped for joy as they received their Christmas packages and were very grateful to Computer Frontiers International for making Christmas happen in their families.”
