Last week, Nokia Mobile CEO, Florian Seiche, announced in an open letter that the company will be donating Nokia phones to frontliners, COVID-19 patients, and people in risk groups. According to Seiche, Nokia Mobile is now coordinating with its employees to get in touch with their local communities to determine which areas needed help the most.
In one LinkedIn post, it was mentioned that Lisa Higgins, HMD Global’s Business Manager for Ireland, has started donating 50 Nokia 8810 4G smart feature phones the other day to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin, Ireland. The phones also said to come with an Eir Ireland SIMs, with “generous” amount of credits.
In another LinkedIn post, HMD Global’s Business Manager for North Europe, Sebastian Kåla, also announced his interest to donating another set of Nokia phones to frontliners, COVID-19 patients, and people in risk groups in Sweden. All you have to do is reach out to him directly, so the team can asses and send in the donations.
So if you are a frontliner from Sweden and see the need of mobile phones at work, you can try reaching out to Business Manager Sebastian Kåla, or the local Nokia Mobile HQ near you to ask for donations.
