Computer Programmer Offers Free Repair of Students’ Laptops for Online School

Saying that the purpose of life is not to be happy but to be useful, computer programmer Mark Anthony Perez offers free repair of students’ laptops to help them with online school.

In a post on Facebook, Mark Anthony explained that he is offering free repair of students’ laptops as long they can provide proof that they are enrolled this year. This would help them have a gadget to use for online learning.

Kung student ka na may sira o mabagal na computer or laptop just message me, para ma check ko and ma-schedule kita. 100% FREE Service, Yes 100% FREE. Walang bayad yung service pero if you what to donate money, any amount will do para pambili ng parts ng mga sirang Computer or Laptop,” Mark Anthony wrote on Facebook.

Pakita mo lang sakin yung Student ID mo and proof na naka enroll ka this school year. At aayusin natin yang device mo.

He also appeals to people who have broken laptops and computers to donate these to him. He promised to repair the items and donate these to students who are in need of a gadget for online school.

If you have Computers, Laptops, Tablets or Mobile Phones na sira na, malapit ng masira or hindi niyo na ginagamit. Please huwag niyo pong itapon, ibigay niyo nalang po sakin para maayos ko at mai-donate po natin sa mga student na walang device na gamit for Online Learning,” he appealed to netizens.

After the post went viral, he received a lot of PMs from students who wished to avail of his offer. So, Mark Anthony is now asking for help from those who also know how to fix computers to help him out in this advocacy because he can’t do it alone.

Since there would surely be parts that needed to be bought for the broken gadgets, Mark Anthony said he is also open to accepting donations from kindhearted netizens.

According to Mark Anthony, he was unsure at first why he was doing this but wants to help in something that he is capable of doing.

Hindi ko alam kung bakit ko to ginagawa, ang alam ko lang gusto ko lang makatulong kahit sa simple bagay lang na ganito. Minsan na din akong nahirapan at may mga taong tumulong sakin. Panahon na para ako naman ang magbalik ng tulong para sa iba,” he added.
