Technology Supporting Bushifre Relief Update

Since the launch of the 'Technology Supporting Bushfire Relief' website last week, Infoxchange has received more than 100 expressions of interest from people with information technology expertise wishing to help individuals and organisations affected by the Victorian bushfires. Infoxchange is now matching these people with specific technology rebuilding projects based on location and skills. Anyone still wishing to volunteer can do so by visiting and clicking 'I Can Assist'.

More than 40 new PCs have been distributed to individuals who lost their homes and belongings in the fire. New information and communications technology equipment is still needed to help people and essential community services organisations get back online. Equipment donations can be made at the website above, and an Infoxchange staff member will contact you to make the logistical arrangements.

People in the fire-affected areas of Arthurs Creek, Strathewen, Wandong and Whittlesea can also visit their local Technology Support Hub to access the internet, check and send emails, print, scan or photocopy documents and complete any online task. Up to 15 hubs will be set up as part of the Telstra/NAB Helping Hand Program. If you have a suggested location for a hub, please email ua.ten.egnahcxofni|dnahgnipleh#ua.ten.egnahcxofni|dnahgnipleh.
