Money

When a disaster or crisis strikes, Indians are always keen to help. To make a lasting difference in communities, we ask people to donate money instead of goods

Why do we need Money and not Goods?
Often, people want to collect second-hand goods and send them to the affected areas.
This approach is not recommended by national and international experts. In fact, in many situations, they have found it to be damaging and detrimental to those in need.

We also support this view, because:
  •  Collecting, storing and shipping donated goods takes time. Often, by the time the goods are sent, the emergency relief phase is over and priorities have changed.
  •  Unsolicited or unwanted aid can clog up logistics chains. This creates delays, distracting relief staff and resources from more important tasks. This is widely known as the "second disaster". It also means Social Activities in Indian Framework is left with large quantities of unneeded goods, sometimes at great cost.
  •  An effective way to aid recovery is by restoring livelihoods and local economic activity. Where we can, we source emergency relief goods locally. Importing items can damage local retailers and affect market prices, especially in poorer communities.
  •  Years of experience have taught us what emergency aid is needed during a disaster or conflict. We store large quantities of these items in and around our dropping centres across the country
  •  Communities recover faster when we source goods locally and use recognised relief items. This is why we ask for cash instead of goods. Cash is also easier to collect, transfer, distribute and account for.
