The Vodafone Czech Republic Foundation donates hundreds of old computers

27. February 2009

The Vodafone Czech Republic Foundation distributed more than 1200 used computers and laptops to non-profit organizations in the Czech Republic. In the first round, the Union of the Physically Disabled in the Czech Republic and the civil society, Elpida plus, dedicated to helping seniors, received 90 and 12 computers. In the next round, computers will go to low-threshold clubs. “Around twelve hundred computers and laptops used by Vodafone employees will complete their warranty period in the next few days. That’s why the company decided to give them to the Vodafone Foundation, which will further distribute them to non-profit organizations, who can still use them for quite a long time,” says Robert Basch, director of the Vodafone Czech Republic Foundation.

The donated computers will go through a complete check to be sure that only those in perfect condition go to non-profit organizations. They will all come with Windows XP installed.

“The donated computers will be used in a classroom for teaching seniors,” says Miroslava Fuchsová, director of the Elpida plus civil society’s Internet School for Seniors.

The Union of the Physically Disabled distributed its 90 computers among city and regional organizations in all areas of the Czech Republic. “The computers will be used for teaching and educating the disabled in city and regional organizations as well as for the day-to-day operations of those organizations,” says Helena Klasnová, chairwoman of the Czech Union of the Physically Disabled.

The remaining computers will be donated to “Low-threshold Clubs” for young people, which fill an important preventative role in the lives of adolescents.
