Plus, together with Cyfrowy Polsat and the POLSAT Foundation, will donate 2 thousand tablets to orphanages, family-run orphanages, foster families and educational care facilities in Poland. The action is above all carried out in response to families’ and children’s needs connected with distance education, as well as the continuation of supporting #zostanwdomu (#stayathome) social action.
Due to a lack of adequate equipment and problems with Internet access, many pupils and students are unable to participate in distance education while using the latest technologies. In a situation which is difficult for them, while trying to equalize their chances of acquiring knowledge, Plus, Cyfrowy Polsat and the POLSAT Foundation have decided to support those establishments, which, because of the number of people they have under their care, are most affected by the problems resulting from the necessity of resorting to distance learning.
The POLSAT Foundation, which for many years has been involved in providing aid to those in need, will act as an intermediary in distributing more than 2 thousand connected tablets. The equipment will go to orphanages, family-run orphanages, foster families and educational care facilities all over Poland.
“Thanks to the POLSAT Foundation’s involvement, we are able to donate over 2 thousand tablets to those who are most in need. People that we have decided to support have found themselves in a particularly difficult situation, especially as regards distance education. And since aid to children has been a part of our Group’s activities for many years, thus we are pleased to take action also this time,” says Mirosław Błaszczyk, the CEO of Cyfrowy Polsat and Polkomtel, the operator of Plus mobile network.
“By doing so, we want to make the lives of these families and children easier in the new circumstances and to provide them with access to knowledge, to their friends and their loved ones. I hope that thanks to our support their contact with school will be somewhat easier, doing homework will be more effective and pleasant while their leisure time will be diversified,” said Krystyna Aldridge-Holc, the President of POLSAT Foundation.
