MANILA – What does the Bureau of Customs (BOC) in the Philippines do with laptops, mobile phones and other gadgets seized at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport?
The BOC on Tuesday (October 27) announced it would donate seized and abandoned electronic devices to the Department of Education (DepEd) to help distance learning for students.
Among the items seized or left unclaimed were tablets, flash drives, hard drives, computer monitors, printers, routers and pocket WiFi.
BOC-Port of NAIA district collector Carmelita Talusan said on Tuesday they are now preparing the gadgets, books, school bags and shoes for donation.
“Customs NAIA hopes that the gadgets will be of help in the blended learning program of DepEd and be able to support these new learning modalities of students in different communities,” Talusan said.
Last week, the Port of Clark donated to DepEd more than 5,000 electronic devices, including nearly 200 Huawei Matebook D15 Notebook and 4,840 kinds of Oppo mobile phones. CAM/Expat Media
