It could have felt like a bridge too far. How could a multinational company see surplus product empower people in remote locations of need? One such company, who approached us this year, had hundreds of new clothing items to donate, along with 43 huge rolls of surplus cloth. We looked for an appropriate NGO through our Global Hand service.
In the west of China, villages perched in mountainous areas proved a perfect match. Families there struggle with the remoteness of their location and, in consequence, the limited access they have to resource. The provision of the ready clothing met immediate need and the cloth, with which they could make so much more, was a significant gift. Hundreds were reached through the donation and the grateful recipients empowered.
It delights us to see Global Hand help company donations reach those who might otherwise, indeed, prove to be a bridge too far.
