ERA Donates Tech to the Somali Relief Network of North in Halifax

By electronic recycling association September 15, 2023

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) has donated five desktop computers to the Somali Relief Network of North in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This donation comes at a crucial time for the organization, which has recently opened an office in the area and required computers to carry out essential office tasks and access basic internet functions, including Google Apps such as Google Docs and Google Sheets.

The Somali Relief Network of North is an organization dedicated to providing humanitarian aid, support, and assistance to Somali communities in need. Their work extends to various areas, including healthcare, education, and social services. With the opening of their new office in Halifax, they faced the challenge of acquiring the necessary tools to efficiently manage their operations and fulfill their mission effectively.

The ERA’s donation of five desktop computers will greatly alleviate this challenge. These computers will empower the organization’s staff to carry out administrative tasks, communicate with stakeholders, and access vital online resources.

This donation exemplifies the ERA’s commitment to promoting digital inclusion and sustainability. By recycling and repurposing electronic devices, the ERA not only reduces electronic waste but also contributes to the betterment of communities in need. The ERA’s mission aligns perfectly with the Somali Relief Network of North’s goals, as it allows them to have access to technology that can enhance their efficiency and impact.
