High school students in bushfire impacted community whose families are experiencing financial hardship
I am seeking donations of laptops for the most vulnerable students currently attending high school in my community. As a local Community Development Officer, I work and liaise very closely with the high school and am aware that many families have to provide computer access for their children, many cannot afford this expense and so many children are going without this essential item. In addition to not have access to digital technology for educational purposes, the impact of Covid 19 on the community has significantly affected young peoples mental health and access to health care intervention. Statistically, I have evidenced an increase in mental health and social isolation anxiety due to our region experiencing multiple disasters for an extended period of time.
