PS. Want to support their project? Here's the story in brief: “Ed O'Connor, a Transaid volunteer, is one of 4 finalists competing for 2 places in the Vodafone World of Difference competition. If Ed wins one of the 2 places Vodafone will pay his salary for 12 months, and additionally Vodafone will provide £20K for expenses and project costs. If Ed wins he will be running the Emergency Transport project in Northern Nigeria. This is an extremely vital project which will develop a system of transport to allow women living in remote rural areas access to health facilities to give birth safely. A ground breaking project and a great opportunity for Transaid.
