QSC gives 65 Green Computers to the Eid Charity

(QSC) handed over 65 Green Computers to the Eid Charity yesterday. The green computer project launched eight months ago aims at utilising computer parts which are discarded by users and recycling them to make new ones.

“The effort was launched with the help of Microsoft and many other companies who had handed over their unwanted PCs to be recycled,” said Hassan Abdula A Al Abdallah (sixth right in the picture), secretary-general, QSC, and the chairman of Green Computer Project.

“In this way we have made computers which are ready to be used as new. 65 of them have been handed over to the Eid Charity. The computers will be given to children who cannot afford computers either in Qatar or abroad,” he told The Peninsula.

The project is environment-friendly as it recycles the various parts of the computer. Muhammad Hammoudi (third left), of Microsoft Qatar also attended the function held at the QSC yesterday.
