Donate with Dignity is more than simply sending your old goods to people in need.
Truly supporting others is about empowerment and equality. Sharing items of quality and in a dignified way. Respecting people that are facing a difficult situation, struggling to provide for their own needs and livelihood. The aim is not just to help people survive, but to also to give them a sense hope and support in overcoming this crisis.
The goal of this project is to ship two full - 40ft sea containers to Lebanon between 12 April and 7 May.
donate with dignity
Lebanon has been strongly affected by several crises.
They are facing severe political instability and a collapsed economy. On top of that came the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to a crumbling healthcare system, and in August last year the Beirut blast rendering 300.000 people homeless in one day. Many people are pushed into extreme poverty and vulnerability, the most vulnerable being hit the hardest.

Together with the Pulsed team we started the Lebanon challenge. On April 12th, all 80 Fontys Pulsed students will work together doing their utmost to collect as much of the necessarysupplies for Lebanon as possible. To make sure that the donations reach Lebanon properly, partnerships have been created with a number of non-profit organisations working in Lebanon.
