Placing material aid strategically

Right goods, placed the right way, can change the future of those who receive them. Wrong goods, placed the wrong way, can be ineffective or harmful, even if well meant.

That’s why our creed is to place goods wisely and well. Our team advises both donors and recipients to ensure any match made will be of strategic help. If goods offered are inappropriate for a certain country or need, our experienced team works with both sides to find a better match, one where the donation will help people on the ground in the best way possible.

Humanitarian logistics specialists
Our network includes seasoned specialists in humanitarian logistics. That means we can take goods large and small: by the box, the pallet or container load.

‘Teach a man to fish’: Are donated goods needed?
We all know the maxim: ‘Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats tomorrow.’ In our experience, though, that fisherman might need more than teaching. He may need equipping. In order to thrive he may need a boat, a freezer  or even a computer to track his sales. That’s where we step in to help others step up.
