Last Spring, juniors Ananth Sastry and Ashish Shah from University of Miami’s Delta Epsilon Psi Fraternity boarded their flight to Port-au-Prince with four newly repaired computers. Health care agents now use those computers in participation with Project Medishare’s Community Health Program.
The fraternity, which joined UM’s greek life last Fall, voluntarily seeks to repair and donate old computers to underprivileged countries through a program called Project PC Hookup.
This academic year, the seven-member fraternity plans to donate at least 25 computers to help Project Medishare set up a classroom in Haiti for children as part of the educational component of Project Medishare’s Integrated Community Development Program.
Members spend four to five hours a week fixing the computers.
