MyBaikHati, which was announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on March 17, aims to collect used devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones to be refurbished before being distributed to B40 families.
Some of the devices will also be distributed to Pusat Internet Komuniti where it will be available on loan to members of the community.
