Do you support ‘Covid Loans’ for struggling businesses?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Central Leader

Auckland’s city business district has lost $80 million over the latest lockdown.

Heart of the City chief executive Viv Beck is calling on the government to consider ‘Covid Loans’.

“We’re keen to see innovative ideas to support businesses and not load the country up with more debt than necessary,” she said.

“Many people have told us they have not had good access to capital and ‘Covid Loans’ could be a solution that could be implemented using existing arrangements.”

’Covid Loans’ would allow businesses to access funding with much more manageable repayment options, similar to student loans,

Free Pickup of Unwanted Laptops, Laptop Chargers, and Gadgets - Usable, Old or Broken.

Jed from Mount Roskill

Help us help the indigent students in the Philippines -🇵🇭  - Like and Share our Facebook Page as Well.







Copied from Ron's Original Post



I am from the Philippines and based in Hamilton.



We are sending laptops and gadgets back home as there are a lot of students there who would like to go to school but they cannot because of Covid.



Their only chance now to study is via online learning. if you have any laptops or gadgets that could enable them to go online...everything will be very much appreciated.



If you know anyone who is just disposing their old techs... please do let them now as I have seen people just dumping their techs where in those could have been usable in the hands of a student wanting to learn.



You won't have to worry about pickups. All you have to do is put it in a box , will send you a tracking number and courier will pickup from your place.



Most of the laptops and gadgets collected will go to the Philippines and the others will be sold here to help fund the operating cost of pickups (mainly for courier, shipping and pickups).



If you also have other things that are of value that you would want to donate... we can accept them also. We will sell them and the proceeds will help us to keep operations going.



Kindly message me here or text/call Ron at 02108512849.



Maraming Salamat po! (Thank You!)
