Greenville-based charity AidJoy, which provides technology and technical know-how to assist charities around the globe, recently announced that the charity is seeking to support itself so that the volunteer group can expand its philanthropic efforts through an online fundraiser.
The fundraiser will be available until Dec. 31 and money raised will be used to fund support for continued projects and to help additional charities in 2014.
AidJoy’s projects include Project Amazonas, which delivers medical aid to remote communities in the Amazon rainforest. According to a release, with AidJoy’s involvement, Project Amazonas has expanded its medical program from treating 1,500 patients to 9,000 patients a year. In addition, AidJoy is overseeing the financing and construction of a medical facility that will help 45,000 people a year in that region.
