Can we motivate you to join in the largest Swiss humanitarian street campaign? Show your good side and volunteer as helper in the annual Orange Sale of Terre des hommes.
Oranges for treating children
Thanks to Terre des hommes hundreds of thousands of children and their mothers find access to medical care, nutrition and hygiene – lasting and where they live. You also can make your contribution: Join our 1,500 dedicated volunteers on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th March 2015, and be part of the largest humanitarian street campaign in Switzerland. Our volunteer groups will be active at over 250 stands in many towns and regions over the country.
All assistance counts, whether you come for three or four hours, or for the whole day. Fill in the online form giving the date, time and place where you can help. Your local volunteer group will then contact you about the next step.
Help which bears fruit!
Through the presence and dedication of volunteers at the sales stands, Terre des hommes managed to collect almost CHF 800,000 in 2014. With this Terre des hommes financed its Tdh’s health programmes in 17 countries where we seek to reduce child malnutrition, care for pregnant women, and improve access to safe drinking water and sanitary facilities. One further use is for special medical treatment in Switzerland of sick children who cannot be treated at home in their native country.
The traditional orange sale, which Terre des hommes has organised for over fifty years, gives passers-by the opportunity of donating 3 Swiss francs for an orange, and of so taking the first step in curing a child's illness.
Examples of what Terre des hommes can finance through the sale of oranges:
• one orange @ CHF 3: one medical consultation
• three oranges @ CHF 9: safe drinking water for two weeks
• five oranges @ CHF 15: five balanced meals
• ten oranges @ CHF 30: two week's hospital treatment
Companies as well have the possibility of supporting us and demonstrating their social commitment. For a number of years now Terre des hommes has organised company orange sales. Further information and ordering information can be found here: www.orange.tdh.ch
