It can be tricky for companies to help donate to people in need if doing so has specific criteria. A common one, in the UK and elsewhere, is that of location.

Happily, within the UK, a number of NGOs are able to collect such donations in support of their overseas work. In this case, half of the donation went to Nigerian women in poverty, and the balance to refugee women in Europe.
