Request for Computers for Refugees - Basic Computers Needed for Communication
|As Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, and many community activists and organizations have been working hard, with your help, to support resettled Palestinian refugee families across the US we have found one common request -- a desire to be able to communicate with other refugee families and those left behind in the camps. A resettled family often has little information about where other families are located, and they themselves are not informed of where they are going to be resettled far enough in advance to inform their relatives. They often feel isolated and helpless as a result. Computers are the main and typically the only way for enabling live contact between the families, and the internet provides an affordable means of constant communication. Therefore we are requesting your help in linking the families through donations of either new or used computers in good working condition..|
We are looking for functioning computers that are capable of running basic instant messaging programs such as Yahoo or AOL Instant Messenger and Skype. A camera is a plus but not necessary. If you have a laptop, netbook, or desktop computer in good working condition that you would like to donate please send an email to: office@...
You may also consider making a small financial contribution towards the purchase of a computer by going to http://al-awda.org/donate.html
and follow the instructions. Just be sure to indicate "computers for refugees" with your electronic submission or on the memo line of your check or money order. Any size donation is truly appreciated.
Again any and all donations are appreciated, especially as we are approaching the first Eid the families will be spending in the US.
Thank you for your generous support!
