Needy students to get used computers through programme


SOME 100 units of refurbished computers will be donated to needy students in Perak to help them in their studies.

Canning assemblyman Jenny Choy said those eligible for the computers were from the B40 bracket and they would be selected later.

“During the movement control order (MCO) period, school and university students are required to study online.

“While many have the privilege of having their own smartphones and computers, there are still those who don’t and they struggle to cope with online lessons,” she said in a press conference at Wisma Impian in Kampung Simee, Ipoh.

“We want to lessen the burden of those in need by giving out these computers to them,” she said, adding that the computers were donated by suppliers.

“These computers are refurbished desktops. They are used but are in good condition,” she added.

Choy hoped corporate companies would be willing to donate computers to help the less fortunate.

“We hope they can do so as part of their corporate social responsibility.

“They can also join our ‘Recycling computer for Malaysians’ initiative, where they can send in used computers that are still in good condition to be given to those who need them,” she said.

Those interested to donate their computers, can call 010–213 8907.
