Welcome to Oscar’s Phone Hospital.
For the past six months my 13 year old son, Oscar has taken a real interest in restoring old smartphones and iPhones for Asylum Seekers arriving in the Uk.
He helps me source phones via donation and on eBay, often with cracked screens or other damage. He replaces screens and batteries and has more recently worked out how to configure the logic board on older phones to accept WhatsApp.
I’m pleased to say, thanks to Oscar’s help, the North London C4C group has been able to give out a number of phones to new arrivals in our area. This makes a massive difference as they are able to contact their families who may be in war zones to make sure they are safe, contact legal aid lawyers to help with their asylum claims, learn English on line and so much more.
