Laptops enable vital service to keep running during COVID-19
Laptop and iPad donations are treasured by groups like Sydney’s Kurranulla Aboriginal Corporation. Due to COVID-19, their face-to-face services with vulnerable and elderly locals have been disrupted. The team found themselves in urgent need of laptops and iPads, to help them process client intakes remotely and provide critical internet access.
GIVIT assisted with the donation of iPads and laptops, a vital resource during this time.
“A massive thanks to the team at GIVIT for arranging the donation of two laptops and two iPads for the staff and clients of Kurranulla Aboriginal Corporation.
“We plan on having the staff use the laptops, to be able to work from home during the COVID changes to the workplace, which will ensure we can continue to deliver support to our many vulnerable clients as well as providing outreach services where needed. The iPads will be set up for the use of staff when completing client intake and may also be accessible by community members for short periods of time to access the internet. Ensuring our clients are keeping up to date with the latest news and events during this crisis is crucial,” shared Kurranulla staff Sheryn and Lauren.
Kurranulla Aboriginal Corporation is a drop in centre for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community living in the Sutherland Shire and St George areas. Kurranulla strives to develop closer ties between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal groups and promote Aboriginal culture.
GIVIT is proud to be able to support this great work, by providing essential donations needed to get through the pandemic.
