ZAGREB, April 20, 2020 – Public Administration Minister Ivan Malenica and the Director General of Huwaei Croatia, Zhang Heng, on Monday visited Zagreb families who were left without their homes in the March 22 earthquake and are living in a student dormitory in Zagreb, donating to them Huawei tablets worth HRK 250,000.
The Chinese technology company donated 170 MediaPad T5 10 tablets to families affected by the earthquake.
Minister Malenica spoke with citizens about their everyday routine in the temporary accommodation, recalling the possibility of using digital services, which would help them in coping with their current situation, the ministry said in a press release.
“It is in situations like this that digitisation is the key and all its advantages come to the fore – even though we are distanced, we are connected,” said Malenica.
We wanted to relieve the everyday routine for fellow citizens affected by the earthquake who were compelled to vacate their homes. We hope that these tablets will help the youngest keep up with online lessons and provide older users with access to timely information as well as facilitate contact with family members and serve as a way to occupy one’s free time, Zhang Heng said.
