Helpware Corp, the leader in modern outsourced customer service and business process outsourcing (BPO), leverages its global reach for good. The company announces today the launch of The Helpcare Foundation, a consortium of BPO providers, customers and individuals coming together to fight childhood cancers across the globe.
By joining forces with World Child Cancer the new foundation has a singular goal to pool resources in support of the over 400,000 children around the world suffering from cancer; with the goal of reversing the shockingly low survival rate in low and middle-income countries.
"The Helpcare foundation is an opportunity for the BPO / Services sector to make a dynamic impact in the global communities in which we live and work each day. For those children diagnosed with cancer in low and middle income countries, survival rates can be as low as 10%, with many children dying without effective pain relief. In comparison, 80% of children with cancer in the high income world survive. The geographies with the most needs and challenges for support also happen to be in the “backyard” of the largest BPO / Service Hubs in the world. What a wonderful opportunity for the Services Sector to unite with a cause and provide support that will drive a significant impact for the amazing people we employ, right in their own communities." -Robert Nash, President, The Helpcare Foundation
