Electronics Department Technician

Help us repair fridges and washing machines

Project Details

What we need

  • Repair fridges and washing machines
  • Looking for some strong volunteers as some physical work required (move fridges and washing machines)
  • Technicians preferred, electrical engineering skills required
  • Seniors preferred, retirees especially welcome
  • Dates negotiable! Come once every week on any day except Thursday

Background

Fridges and washing machines are among some of our most valuable donations. Unfortunately, some arrive faulty or are damaged in the process of transit. We are looking for someone to help repair such electronics so we do not have to waste the goodwill of other people.

What we have

Specialized training in repairing fridges and washing machines will be provided, as well all the necessary equipment. Full-day volunteers are also more than welcome to stay for lunch!

Why this is important

By repairing previously unusable fridges and washing machines, we hope to provide more supplies to our clients to ensure that they have a higher standard of living. More specifically, access to a fridge may provide a person with food the next day, and washing machines allow people to wear clean clothes, thus affording them the dignity of looking presentable.

What we do

Crossroads Foundation is a Hong Kong based, non-profit organisation serving global need. We believe that, in a broken world that sees too much suffering, we should do all we can to link those who are in need with those who can provide help. So we provide an intersection, literally a crossroads, to bring both together. • Global Distribution: This distributes Hong Kong's quality excess goods as needed, internationally and locally. It provides a crossroads between need and supply. • Global X-perience: This offers simulated x-periences of global need. It provides a crossroads between the lifestyles of the rich and poor. • Global Handicrafts: This sells fair trade goods from people in poverty. It is a crossroads between those needing a fair income and those with buying power. • Global Hand: This provides a 'matching' website for public- private partnerships. It is a crossroads between for-profit and non-profit organizations who wish to address global need.
