Toronto, October 31st, 2014 – Scarsin Corporation, a software development and services company specializing in providing enterprise-class Business Intelligence (BI) to global organizations, announced that it will be making another significant donation to the GRID (Ghana Rural Integrated Development) initiative, a Canadian Christian charitable organization that enables sustainable community development in Ghana, West Africa. This is the second year that Scarsin is participating in the program, providing support to the Uxbridge-led Ghana Medical Mission.
GRID, an organization which was founded in 1970, has been helping to drastically improve the quality of life for Northern Ghanaians living in poor communities, by meeting their basic needs in a sustainable manner. GRID includes a number of programs aimed at improving Education, Environmental Protection, Food Security, Health, Water and Sanitation, Peace and Women’s rights.
Scarsin’s donation will go directly to purchasing medical supplies for the Uxbridge-led Ghana Medical Mission’s Heath team who travels to Northern Ghana to offer clinics to thousands of patients who cannot afford medical care.
“We are grateful to receive such significant support from Scarsin. Because of the generosity of the Uxbridge community, along with the enormous efforts of our volunteers, our team has been able to provide medical, surgical, dental and eye care to about 50,000 patients to date,” said Dr. Jennifer Wilson, Ghana Health Team Leader and GRID Board Member. “Scarsin’s generous donation will help us to equip our team members for our 2015 mission, positioning us to care for another 10,000 people.”
“As a local organization with global clients, we are thrilled when our community positively impacts global causes. Scarsin is touched by the direct efforts of the GRID team and the support of the rest of the community,” said Paul Minshull, President and CEO of Scarsin Corporation. “Dr. Jennifer Wilson’s work is instrumental in providing Ghanaians with access to medicine, clinics and health professionals – services that do not exist and are unaffordable in northern Ghanaian communities.”
