We’re always on the lookout for mobile phones in good working order.
To lose your phone is to feel lost, disconnected and without information.
For those hundreds of thousands fleeing war, a smartphone can be a life line.
It’s a basic tool that means they can make a much needed call home. Access maps to find out where they are. Find information about what to do next, and what’s going on in the world.
A lot of the families and individuals coming to the refugee camps in Europe don’t have one. They’ve been lost, stolen or damaged on the way.
They don’t necessarily need to be smart phones. For many refugees their phone is their only link with the Home and the family that they’ve left behind.
We’re constantly receiving requests for them.
So, if you wouldn’t mind checking your cupboards and drawers for surplus phones and chargers we’d be delighted to take them off your hands.
You can help
If you can’t find any mobile phones but would like to make a cash donation, we can use this to purchase refurbished phones at a reasonable price for those in greatest need.
We’ve received many wonderful donations over the past months. Thanks so much to those of you who have contributed so generously.
