Supporting Refugees With Migrant Help

We recently received some wonderful feedback from Migrant Help, a UK charity set up to support those most in need and least likely to find support elsewhere, after donating laptops to give their beneficiaries a tool to open a world of new opportunities and carve a brighter future for themselves.

We’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you for your continued support and computer donations. Without your help, none of this would be possible. To highlight the impact of your technology donations, we’ve pulled together a few of our favourite quotes from beneficiaries and advisors at Migrant Help.

This laptop that my caseworker gave me has really helped me. I am a single mum to my little boy and I am also trying to complete my studies. I am studying English and I am also being helped to complete a teaching assistant course. There are lots of assignments to complete and also my son to look after. He goes to nursery sometime but not every day. Before receiving this gift of a laptop, I was trying to go to the library to write my assignments, but I can’t do this when I am with my son
because he gets so tired and cries. Now I can write them in my room when he sleeps. I am now not behind on my work and doing well. I want to go to work as soon as my son starts school as I am a good worker and this laptop has made it even possible. Thank you so much for my laptop.

I want to say thank you very very much for all your support and this computer you gave me. You know I want to be busy but until the Home Office finish my case I cannot work and as you know my English is not strong. I did not feel good enough in my mental health to go to college to study and this made me feel sad but now thanks to computer and the websites you showed me I am working on my English every day and watching lessons on youtube to learn. Thank you for everything.

We requested a laptop because she’s very keen to study to achieve her dreams. She completed a counselling course (level 2) and is looking into enrolling on a new course to obtain the level 3 certificate. She has also attended the ClearVoice interpreting course too. The laptop has helped her to attend the online lessons, do her homework and will be an essential resource for her education path.
