Do your employees have any mobile phones they no longer need? If so, with the help of Swisscom and SOS Children’s Villages, you can launch a collection campaign within your company. It doesn’t matter if the phones work or not, we will sell them and donate the proceeds to SOS Children’s Villages.
For a limited time, the company’s employees can drop their unwanted phones into the Mobile Aid box.
After the collection period, Swisscom delivers the boxes to the social organisation Réalise.
The Geneva-based socal organisation Réalise deletes all personal data from the phones.
RS Switzerland in Fribourg sells the phones that are still working.
