Musicians Help Aid FOSS Initiative in Africa

,----[ Quote ]
| Few things are more heartbreaking than the notion of children without access 
| to healthcare. While no one denies that there's a tremendous need for better 
| healthcare options for American children, the U.S. provides for emergency 
| care, vaccinations, and other basic needs. Children in many other countries 
| aren't so lucky.

| IntraHealth International works with nations across the globe to provide the 
| training and infrastructure communities need to solve public health issues 
| within their own country. One initiative, IntraHealth OPEN focuses on using 
| open source technologies in impoverished areas because of its accessibility, 
| adaptability, and versatility.
