TWC2 is giving out the phones to its clients who are unable to work or who have not been paid by their employers, with a points system to help prioritise workers according to their needs.
TWC2 treasurer Alex Au said that the group has collected about 300 phones since September 2016, of which half were in working condition. The group also raised $11,458 and bought an additional 100 phones.
The Lasallian Youth Network are also collecting 3G mobiles for foreign workers.
It has amassed 20 phones since February and has also raised some $2,500 to purchase phones. It hopes to collect 100 phones and raise $4,000 by April as it has identified 105 needy individuals.
