Commentary by Microsoft President: Father’s Day: A day for families to be together

Alle Tags anzeigen

This Father’s Day provides an opportunity to recall one thing we shouldn’t take for granted – the opportunity to be with our children... And given the news of migrant children being separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border, it’s especially poignant this year. Twenty years ago, Microsoft became the first business to partner with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees in a new private sector program. Our goal was simple: to use technology to reunite families that had been separated by violence. The place was Bosnia, and the cause was the war that had ripped whole communities apart... Ten years ago, in the United States, Microsoft co-founded a national volunteer organization, Kids in Need of Defense, or KIND... When we keep children with their parents, we not only follow in the footsteps of one of the world’s oldest and most important humanitarian traditions, we help build a stronger country.
