Program Overview:

In-Kind Gifts are donated goods and services rather than monetary donations. Goods are valued at fair market prices, and the donor determines the value of the goods. A review is made by HHRD teams to ensure that a reasonable value is placed.

The In-Kind Gifts Program has been saving and enhancing the lives of thousands of beneficiaries since 2008. From local private donations to large corporate shipments, HHRD is truly connecting people's resources with people's needs around the world.

A wheelchair allows a man the freedom to move, a pair of shoes and clothes give protection to a child from harsh weather and toiletries protect the needy from germs. These shipments are now part of HHRD's ongoing humanitarian campaign to provide urgently needed aid to the hospitals, clinics, schools, and civilians of war-torn countries.

Program Objectives:

  • 1. To provide relief to disaster affected people
  • 2. To recycle useful gifted items for needy people
