WeBuyAnyPhone.com gifts £10,000 of mobile phones to Ukraine

Volunteers supporting rescue work in Ukraine have taken delivery of £10,000 worth of mobile phones donated by tech recycling specialist WeBuyAnyPhone.com.

The package of 100 brand new Alcatel devices, chosen for their long battery life, was included in a van load of aid delivered to Poland by a Hampshire-based group of volunteers.

From there, the phones will go to the Ukrainian Association of Women in Law Enforcement, which will use them to coordinate search and rescue efforts, and for counselling people traumatised by the conflict. Mobile phones are in short supply in the country because of ongoing looting by Russian forces.

The delivery was coordinated by Mick Balch, Managing Director at Portsmouth-based L&S Waste Management, who has completed several deliveries to the region since the war began in February.

Aaron Brown, Co-Founder, WeBuyAnyPhone.com said, “all of us at WeBuyAnyPhone.com have been shocked and appalled to see the suffering in Ukraine, but also in awe of those who are helping on the front line and by delivering aid to those who need it.

“Sometimes it’s difficult to know how to help, but when we heard about the need for mobile phones, we saw a way that we could have an immediate impact. We’re pleased to see that these devices are now going to be put to good use and grateful to Mick and all the volunteers involved for getting them where they were needed most.”
