DV safe phones

Belmont 16s Sailing Club and Belmont Rotary Unite for DV Safe Phone Initiative

Starting July 1 and running through October 1 2024, Belmont 16s Sailing Club, in collaboration with Belmont Rotary, will serve as a designated collection point for DV Safe Phone donations. This initiative is a crucial community effort aimed at providing domestic violence victims with functional mobile phones, ensuring they have a lifeline in times of need.

The DV Safe Phone project seeks to collect old intact and working mobile phones , which are then refurbished with new sim cards and distributed to domestic violence victims. These phones provide a critical means of communication, allowing victims to reach out for help and stay connected with supportive services. By partnering with Belmont Rotary, Belmont 16s is making it easier for community members to contribute to this vital cause.

Members and visitors of Belmont 16s Sailing Club are encouraged to drop off their old mobile phones at the donation box located at the Club’s reception area. Chargers are also welcome. Before donating, donors are asked to clear all data from their devices. Detailed instructions on how to do this will be provided to ensure privacy and security. Each donated phone will be refurbished and given to someone in need, offering them a crucial tool for communication and safety.

For more information on the DV Safe Phone project and how you can help, please visit the Belmont 16s Sailing Club reception or contact Belmont Rotary. Your contribution can make a significant difference in someone’s life.

Together, we can provide a lifeline to those who need it most.
