Laptop, smartphone, and tablet donations are urgently being sought for evacuated Afghan families
Local charity Community First has been co-ordinating donations in Hampshire for evacuated Afghan families who are staying in temporary accommodation across the county. The charity is now requesting laptops, smartphones and tablets in its latest donation drive. So far, Community First has provided six laptops to families from its emergency response fund, enabling families to keep in touch with their loved ones and access online services.
Donations should be new, nearly new, or used devices that are in good condition and donated together with the correct leads and chargers. If you have suitable equipment to donate, please get in touch with the Community First team using their contact form at https://www.cfirst.org.uk/contact/.
Community First's Chief Executive, Tim Houghton, said "Now that we are successfully distributing the most essential items to families, we can turn our attention to supporting families with establishing their life in the UK and staying socially connected during a very difficult time. Supplying laptops, smartphones and tablets will go a long way to ensuring families can keep in contact with loved ones who may be very far away and start accessing vital services that will help them in the resettlement process.”
