The ProgeSOFT Company has been backing the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), a humanitarian non-profit organisation, for a number of years. NRC protects the rights of displaced and vulnerable people in situations of armed conflict and natural disaster, delivering basic necessities. A roof overhead is among the most urgent needs for a displaced person, and a basic right. NRC strives to ensure that those who flee can find refuge in a safe shelter.
ProgeSOFT supports NRC by continuously granting updated CAD software licenses of its flagship product, for professional drafting and modelling in the DWG file format. The organisation makes use of ProgeCAD Professional to create design documentation for shelter construction. NRC utilises the software to support the design and planning of both emergency shelters and long-term durable housing, as well as to assist in the planning and preparation of refugee camps or other settlements. NRC also uses ProgeCAD to maximise the impact of essential social and technical infrastructure, including spaces for emergency education, drainage and sanitation facilities.
ProgeCAD is proud and honoured that its small contribution to NRC can support their critical work for people forced to flee their homes.
Martin Suvatne, Special Adviser on Shelter at NRC’s Head Office in Oslo, commented: “ProgeCAD Professional is an essential tool for our shelter programmes across the globe. With the scale of our operations, the urgency of the situations and the impact on people’s lives, we have to rely on comprehensive solutions. The support given by ProgeCAD is vital for our shelter programmes”.
NRC has shelter programmes across the globe, currently implemented in 25 countries: Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Cote d’Ivoire, Djibouti, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Greece, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Mali, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Serbia, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Ukraine and Yemen.
ProgeSOFT endeavours to remain concerned about social problems that afflict the world. Whenever there is need, such as in the case of the Norwegian Refugee Council, the software house strives to find solutions in its area of expertise.
