The Access for Good initiative allows our customers to do more for their communities. We donate 1c for every online top-up sent by our users, to provide for the people who need it most.

 

Our donation from the last three months of 2021 was divided between a donation to Médecins Sans Frontières' (MSF) emergency fund and our ongoing partnership in supporting UNICEF, this time in Yemen.

Supporting MSF's emergency response fund

Médecins Sans Frontières is an organisation we has partnered with in the past, who provide medical support in conflict zones around the world.

Their medical help is is offered for free to those who need it, no matter race, religion or political affiliation. They also have no governmental ties, with over 90% of their income coming from private donors, such as Ding. (Source)

The nature of MSF's work means they are often helping migrant communities, and this was a theme that resonated both with our staff, and many of our customers around the world due to the global nature of our service.

Yemen appeal: Humanitarian action for children

UNICEF's humanitarian strategy in Yemen is aimed at providing immediate support for children suffering from acute malnutrition, and protecting children and families from exposure to COVID-19.

We were able to support by providing funds which led to the purchase of:

  • Emergency food kits which include micronutrient powder, therapeutic milk and peanut based 'miracle food' which contain vital vitamins and nutrients.

  • Hygiene kits including soap, hand sanitizer, surgical masks and covid tests for those needing urgent assistance and to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

We partner with some extraordinary charities and together with our customers, are empowering communities around the world through our Access for Good initiative. For every top-up you send, we donate 1 cent to supporting organisations around the world.
