Microsoft Jordan recently donated licenses and software worth US$ 202,370 to benefit the King Hussein Cancer Foundation (KHCF). This in-kind donation will help enhance and upgrade the Foundation’s IT infrastructure, which in turn will improve the performance and security of the KHCF staff’s PCs and servers.

In appreciation of Microsoft’s in-kind donation, HRH Princess Dina Mired, Director General of KHCF, presented a plaque of appreciation to Hussein Malhas, Country Manager of Microsoft Jordan and extended her thanks to the staff at Microsoft, saying: “This is a very important donation to the Foundation, as it will decrease the costs usually undertaken by KHCF to purchase such licenses and software and will also grant KHCF a broad range of benefits from software deployment, planning and staff training to product support and software upgrades. All this will help us to better serve our patients at the King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC). I urge all companies to follow Microsoft’s example and extend a helping hand to benefit our cancer patients, whether through financial or in-kind donations. Every gesture of supports helps us, and every penny counts in the fight against cancer.”

For his part, Mr. Malhas stated on this occasion: “As part of our collaboration to enhance the Center’s infrastructure, we aim to leverage Microsoft’s recently implemented programs to help streamline workflow, facilitate timely communication with volunteers, and support the healthcare services provided to patients at the King Hussein Cancer Foundation.”
