HOW TO GET THE AID TO US: To forward aid please check with prior discussion with the drop off point manager at this link Drop off points | Hope and Aid Direct. If you are corporate entity we always need Bulk goods and surplus supplies, perhaps because of branding changes, or slight imperfections, or market changes. **Please note - the needs lists that we are being given by our partners is constantly changing. With this in mind it is not only possible but likely that some of the aid that is colledted for Ukraine will need to be used for other humanitrarian projects such as Greece or Calais** We couldn’t help anyone without your support. During the past 20 years, since we started Hope and Aid Direct, you have donated over 2,000 tons of aid that we have saved from landfill. We have funded the transportation and distribution of this aid to people in desperate need in Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosova, Montenegro, Romania, Greece, Syria, Philippines, Sri Lanka, France and here in the UK – THANK YOU SO MUCH!
