We consider a monetary donation to be the simplest, fastest and most effective option. We have decided to support the alliance "Aktion Deutschland Hilft" (Campaign Germany Helps) with our donation and are contributing 4,500€.
Network and outreach
Together with our colleagues, customers and partner companies, we were able to raise €6,030. A great result! The entire sum will be distributed by the alliance "Aktion Deutschland Hilft" to the appropriate aid organizations on site.
Besides financial and humanitarian support, there is often a lack of technical resources. Refugees often do not have mobile devices with which they can stay in contact with their families. But also aid organisations have a need for IT to coordinate the assistance offered on the ground. We are currently in intensive exchange with aid organisations to clarify needs and initiate projects.
We will donate hardware ourselves and at the same time rely on our network of IT retailers, system houses and IT manufacturers. In cooperation with aid organisations, we want to collect laptops, smartphones and other useful IT, refurbish them and take them to the places where they are needed.
In order to be able to act quickly in case of need, you as a company can already register your hardware donation with us today! We will collect the enquiries and remain in close contact with you until a specific project has been found in the next few days and weeks.
To deliver the numerous donations in kind to the distribution centres, transport capacities are currently needed in many places. If you need assistance with your project and your organisation, please feel free to contact us directly.
How you can help
The donation pool together of CDS and "Aktion Deutschland Hilft" is closed. 6.030€ came together. Furthermore, you can donate to the alliance organizations of "Aktion Deutschland Hilft", which then help on site. The organizations help with food, drinking water and medical aid.
Together with aid organisations, we are currently working at full speed to get projects off the ground so that needed IT hardware can be made available quickly. As an IT dealer, manufacturer or company, you can already register your hardware donation of new or functioning used IT with us today. We will remain in close contact with you so that we can pick up the equipment from you, process it at our premises, collect it and deliver it to the places where it is needed.
Questions about your hardware donation in cooperation with aid organisations
Which devices can be donated?
There is a need for various devices. Refugees need mobile hardware (mobile phones, smartphones, laptops, power banks) to stay in contact with their families. Aid organisations themselves need office hardware (laptops, printers) to coordinate their services on site. Sie können sowohl Altgeräte als auch Neuware spenden. Obviously, the equipment should be fully functional.
How safe is the remanufacturing process?
With 30 years of experience and around 40,000 refurbishments and installations per year, we are experts in IT refurbishment. The remanufacturing process includes qualified inspection, repair and cleaning - including secure data erasure. You can find more information about our technical background here.
What happens with the equipment?
We collect the reprocessed equipment and store it safely until it is called up by the aid organisations for specific needs. We then deliver the equipment to the places where it is needed. We remain in close contact with you, the donors.
