Emergency aid in Ukraine: Donate your equipment

In cooperation with Habitat for Humanity, we collect equipment donations (old and new equipment), take care of refurbishment and transport to the places where the equipment is needed.

Emergency aid Ukraine: Habitat for Humanity

The war in Ukraine is shocking the whole world. Millions of people are fleeing and are in urgent need of help. 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.

In cooperation with Habitat for Humanity Germany, we want to collect laptops, smartphones and other useful IT, refurbish them and take them to the places where they are needed. We have donated hardware ourselves and at the same time rely on our network of IT retailers, system houses and IT manufacturers.

Habitat for Humanity supports refugees at the borders to Romania with "emergency backpacks", which contain useful, necessary items. Currently, there is a need for powerbanks. In addition, notebooks are needed in the offices in Romania to organise the relief work on site.

The notebooks and monitors that have already been donated are currently being used in a youth centre built by Habitat for Humanity in Buftea (Romania). Here, about 50 young people and children are given the opportunity to seek support in their everyday school life and to receive creative and individual support.

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. You can donate both old equipment and new goods. Obviously, the equipment should be fully functional.

How safe is the refurbishing 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?

If your request does not refer to a specific project, we will give you an overview of the projects currently running. We then check the current needs at the organisations. You may decide on a project. Then we collect the equipment, check it, prepare it and deliver it to the places where it is needed. We remain in close contact with you, the donors.

Will I receive a donation receipt?

Yes, the recipient organisations can issue a certificate of your donation. The procedure is as follows: You issue an invoice to the recipient organisation stating that you waive payment in exchange for a donation receipt. You then receive the donation receipt from the recipient organisation. We can support you in this process by, on the one hand, sending you a receipt as soon as we have received the equipment and by estimating the value of the equipment for you.
