Thomas Lackner, Senior Vice President, Europe, at Apellis Pharmaceuticals, along with his wife Daniela, have been longtime supporters of the Spitler School Foundation and its computer literacy program. Thomas, along with Petro Dragoumanos, Jeff Russo, and Mike McGrawth at Apellis, recently donated over 85 laptops for our schools’ computer labs. This extremely generous gift came at a critical time, as our computers were well-loved by our students and thus reaching the end of their life. Computer literacy is not part of the required curriculum in Cambodia, so SSF relies solely on our donors to provide this essential skill to our students.

We are fortunate to have generous donors like Thomas, Petro, Jeff, and Mike, who volunteer their time, energy, support, and resources to SSF.

Ongoing expenses for SSF include the monthly salaries for computer teachers at both Spitler School and our middle school. We also provide internet access for both schools. We invite you to join our friends at Apellis Pharmaceuticals and help us continue to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of children.
