The tsunami in southern Asia and Africa may be the worst natural disaster of our time. At the beginning of January, Akal Security offered to match employee donations, for a total up to $20,000 combined contributions.
Within two weeks, Akal Security employees donated $4,882 to charities for the tsunami relief efforts. Because of the severity of this natural disaster, Akal will donate the full $20,000 matching funds. The funds will be split up evenly between the American Red Cross and UNICEF.
