The Secretary General of the Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum International Photography Award, HIPA, has announced that the organisation will be donating a number of used laptops to support educational programmes.
Ali Khalifa Bin Thalith Al Humairi said that the gesture is seen as a part of Dubai Municipality's campaign to donate used appliances to those in need and to support educational programmes in various social and educational institutions as well as charitable organisations in the UAE and abroad.
The Secretary General said, "HIPA sincerely believes in the importance of environmental and resource preservation and we see this initiative as a great way of maintaining this vision. We hope that this will also serve to educate the general public on the importance of recycling and re-use of resources."
