As well as our physical warehouse, Crossroads has a virtual one: www.globalhand.org. Anywhere in the world, real time, people with quality goods or services to donate can offer them through our Global Hand service. We will then pass on the offer to our network of NGOs in Europe, Africa, SE Asia, Central Asia and the Americas seeking the right ‘match’.
Placing goods carefully is all important to us. We are strongly committed to doing so wisely and well. Our experienced team works with both sides to ensure that donated goods are placed where they are truly needed and can make a strategic difference in others’ lives. Our network includes seasoned NGOs who specialise in humanitarian logistics.
We welcome donations large and small: by the box, the pallet or container load. NGOs are welcome to let us know if your programmes can use donated goods. We would be glad to talk and match up wherever possible!
Global Hand has also built an online matching system for the United Nations to interact with the corporate sector. www.business.un.org
You are welcome to visit us on www.globalhand.org, wherever you are in the world.
Please note: The Global Hand section of this website has not yet been transitioned to the new look of our other websites. You can use it, though, in its current form. Click here to see the current website.
