The Mission Badges Are Done But Our Work Isn’t
When we launched the missions in 2014: I Care, I Gave, I Inspired on SCN in support of the Doctors Without Borders / Medicins Sans Frontieres program, we not only set a lofty charitable goal but also wished to increase the awareness of this remarkable independent medical humanitarian aid organization.
We ran the campaign for a little over six months. Here are the results graphically represented in SAP Lumira
(thanks for using our tools to illustrate Jason Cao !)
*To continue the work of Susan Keohan you can still make a donation to Doctors Without Borders by going to the Doctors Without Borders SAP Community Donation Page (words don’t suffice to thank Sue!)
Further Increasing Awareness
Partnering with the community on this topic gave us the privilege of working very directly with Doctors Without Borders / Medicins Sans Frontieres .
It provided an opportunity to engage with some of their incredible staff: a remarkable data geek/epidemiologist, Megan McGuire, the MSF corporate relations, as well as meeting with the MSF Managing Director in NYC and with Directorate General for Technology Organization and Systems from Barcelona Spain.
Video capture of some of these engagements at the 2014 SAP TechEd&&dcode events are found here:
