Loneliness can affect anyone, regardless of his or her age or circumstances. For someone who has no one, technology can be a window to the world, a friendly voice in an empty house, or a way of bringing people together.
That is why WaveLength gifts radios, TVs and tablet computers to lonely people living in poverty. We help people who are isolated through illness, disability, old age, homelessness, and more.
We also provide tablet computers to survivors of domestic abuse to help them build new lives of safety and independence. The manager of a domestic abuse refuge told us: “The clients have suffered abuse and trauma. Having to uproot their whole lives and move to a new area can cause great distress for adults and children. Access to a tablet allows adults to search for properties and jobs online and children can complete their homework.”
Tablet computers give survivors access to much-needed online services, Internet banking, and digital support networks. They can also reconnect with the friends and family they had to leave behind:
“You have no idea what this has allowed me to do! I can make contact with my family and speak to them via email so they know we are fine. Thank you, thank you thank you!”
For a survivor of domestic abuse, a simple tablet computer can be life changing. To find out more, visit our website.
