A man who donated his computer equipment to a blind person in Australia said he loves his work and would continue to use it.

Craig Smith was among more than 1,500 people who donated computers and peripherals to a young man with cerebral palsy in Melbourne last week.

Mr Smith, 43, said the computer was the only one he had ever owned.

“I’ve been using it for almost a year and a half,” he said.

“My wife said ‘there’s nothing like it’ and I’m going to buy one.”

Mr Smith said he would keep using the computer to help other people with disabilities.

“It’s amazing.

I can’t even explain it,” he told the ABC.

Mr Watson said he was grateful to Mr Smith for donating the computer.

“He’s been very generous,” Mr Watson said.
