Proxiad Bulgaria will support WeCare Foundation in their cause to help families who were left without income due to the pandemic crisis. WeCare is the winner of the biggest Hackathon in Bulgaria “Hack The Crisis” that took place on 27-29th of March. Through a platform the Foundation collects donations which afterwards are turned into packages of goods, distributed to registered families where one or two parents have lost their jobs because of the worldwide lockdown.
In less than 72 hours after the platform was released, WeCare received more than 800 requests and managed to deploy 20 packages, split into 4 categories: Food, Household Goods, Products for Moms, and Baby Products. This resulted in over 100 packages delivered by the end of April.
Proxiad Bulgaria will contribute in helping more families in need to receive such packages. The company will donate funds gathered from its annual internal charity campaign, called “Computers with Causes”, which will be used for purchasing all necessary goods. Each year, Proxiad Bulgaria organizes an internal lottery where old technical equipment composed of computers, monitors and laptops is sold out. All employees can participate by selecting the technology they are interested in and contribute with predefined price if their name is withdrawn from the list.
“Computer with Causes” is part of the CSR policy of Proxiad Bulgaria, where аlong with cash donations, the company employees spend hours in voluntary work and organization of internal charity events. The latest example is the contribution of Silyana Bojilova – Manager Customer Support for one of the clients of Proxiad Bulgaria - who joins the Hackathon and is one of the founders of WeCare!
