Gifts in Kind

Do you or your company have supplies you would like to donate? We can help you make sure they get to the people around the world who need them most. When you provide materials such as medical equipment, food, and other needed items, your donation will be rushed to help people survive — people like refugees, victims of disaster, and families affected by famine.

Needed items:

  • • New or useable medical equipment
  • • New clothing and shoes
  • • Pre-packaged, dehydrated foods
  • • Therapeutic foods and vitamins
  • • Hygienic supplies
  • • School supplies and equipment
  • • Toys and games

Items we cannot accept:

  • • Used clothing or shoes
  • • Any pharmaceuticals or prescribed medicines
  • • Expired medical supplies
  • • Perishable foods
  • • Unusable equipment or supplies

If you have supplies to donate, please download and complete the Product Donation Form, attach it and submit this online form and someone from our Humanitarian Aid team will reach out about your donation within 48 hours.

How does it work?

World Help’s product distribution strategies are carefully crafted to benefit local populations without disrupting their economies or existing donor product sales in the region. We take careful measures to ensure that the products provided by our donors (YOU!) reach men, women, and children who need them most, and all giving risks are mitigated.

When you donate products from your business, you send a clear message of corporate social responsibility to your customers — ultimately strengthening your brand.

When you provide gifts in kind, you’ll receive consistent communication to help you know the status of your goods, where they will be sent, and even hear stories from people who benefited thanks to your donation.

Want to do more to ensure the physical goods you provide get to people as soon as possible?

You can also help cover the cost of shipping your items internationally to the people who need them most. Any amount you give will help send the goods you provided to families in urgent need. Learn more by clicking here.
