Lo­cals do­nate com­put­ers to univer­sity in Philip­pines

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Ting Chin-huang and Chu Jih­lin, two Tai­wanese busi­ness­men in the Philip­pines, have do­nated 30 com­put­ers to the Catholic Ming Yuen Univer­sity in Ba­colod to help lessen the dig­i­tal di­vide be­tween stu­dents from ru­ral and ur­ban ar­eas.

The com­put­ers were ac­cepted by Su Ta-yi, prin­ci­pal of the univer­sity, on be­half of his in­sti­tu­tion.

Ba­colod is 500 km south of Manila and res­i­dents there, most of whom live in poverty, have no other way to ac­cess com­put­ers ex­cept through the univer­sity.

Ting do­nated 20 com­put­ers to the school a few years ago when it was rais­ing funds to build a new school build­ing. He also do­nated a gen­er­a­tor.
