ROTARY Satellite Club of Sitiawan Manjung Youth has donated laptops to 15 students from four schools in Manjung district in Perak.

Club chairman Eddy Ong said the donations were part of its “A Student A Laptop” programme organised to help those in need.

“We had heard from school teachers that there were students from the B40 group who were unable to attend online classes and this had affected their studies.

“We made some arrangements and donated the laptops to the students who could not afford to buy them, ” he said.

“The students chosen are also those with good academic results.

“The programme is part of our club project to help the community, ” Ong said, adding that the club was formed under the Rotary Club of Sitiawan, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

The students who received the laptops are from SMK Methodist ACS Sitiawan, SMJK Nan Hwa Sitiawan, SMJK Ayer Tawar and SMJK Dindings Pundut, Lumut.
