Carmel School recently donated a batch of its old computers to Cambodian Medical Students via Rotary.

We are told that these will make an incredible difference for them, and of course there are the wonderful flow on effects to the community.

The computers in question were considered too old and slow for use at Carmel.

It is incredible that what is considered waste in Australia, is incredibly valuable in less fortunate locations. There is a high price to pay for high performance, speed and reliability, and we have grown accustomed to a high level from our computing systems – and of course that is also why they cost us so much money.

Next time you are sitting back for 5, 10 or even 100 seconds waiting for your computer to do something, take the time to think about how you could help others who are less fortunate than yourself. Think about how you too could positively impact an entire community and how you would like the world to be.
