Charities receive 400 refurbished laptops from IT service provider NCS

IT service provider NCS has donated 400 refurbished laptops to 10 charities to help support classroom lessons and organisations' administrative needs.

The MINDS Lee Kong Chian Gardens School will receive 125 laptops and the remaining ones will be distributed to the other charities.

"We are happy to receive the laptops from NCS, and have already identified uses for these laptops," said Ms Sharon Ng, principal of the MINDS Lee Kong Chian Gardens School. "We will be utilising them in our computer classes to teach our students computer skills and passing some of these laptops to students who do not have a computer at home."

The donation from NCS, part of the SingTel Group, is an extension of the partnership between SingTel and the National Council of Social Service through the SingTel Touching Lives Fund. The 10 charities come under the umbrella of the NCSS. The fund has raised over $24 million for charities under the council.
