Lifelites Donate Pre-Loved Computers to Charity

Wed 1st Feb 2012 

Everyone loves a good cause, and, of course, charities are no different.

That’s why, when a children’s hospice no longer needs the computers and hardware Lifelites provides, the children’s charity makes sure it donates the replaced equipment to Computers 4 Africa. Lifelites is the only charity in the UK to install and maintain assistive technology packages for terminally ill children in hospices.

Their innovative work was recognised this summer as they were declared Overall Winners at the prestigiousTechnology4Good Awards. “These computers form a vital part of the care hospices provide,” Simone Enefer-Doy, Chief Executive of Lifelites, said, “Once installed the children can use them to learn with or to play with their brothers and sisters.
We often hear about how our packages allow severely disabled children control over something for the first time in their lives.” Lifelites renew their packages every four years and have been donating the replaced hardware to Africa technology projects for some time.
“We get through a lot of hardware; our package has changed considerably over the last few years to keep up with developments in assistive technology.” Simone explained, “Even as our packages become more tailored to the needs of disabled children, it’s great to know our older kit is still of value.”
