Social Resposibility

IDATA has embarked upon a mission to help those in our community who need it most. We do this not because we have to, but because we can. On a quarterly basis, the company purchases basic day-to-day items of food to be distributed to those in need. IDATA staff gets involved putting the parcels together and going to the various communities to deliver them. The images below portray a lifestyle that we are rarely faced with in our own lives. Please take some time and have a look at some of the people we have made a small difference to.
