The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is proud to announce the donation of 10 laptops to the Calgary Catholic Immigration Society. The donation will be used to provide electronic devices to Afghanistan refugees who recently arrived to Calgary and help support CCIS’s Canada Connects Program.
“Calgary was chosen to be a hub because we have one of the largest settlement agencies across the country and obviously there is capacity, it’s a medium-sized city,” said Bindu Narula, director of resettlement for CCIS.
The ERA understands that the becoming a refugee doesn’t just mean losing your home. It means being disconnected from every aspect of your life: your friends, your education, your social networks, and the technology that makes it all possible.
CCIS (Calgary Catholic Immigration Society) is a non-profit organization which provides settlement and integration services to all immigrants and refugees in Southern Alberta. Since our inception in 1981, we have been a community leader with solid experience in the design and delivery of comprehensive services for our newest neighbours.
