Orange Sale

Oranges for treating children
Thanks to Terre des hommes, hundreds of thousands of children and their mothers have lasting and local access to medical care, nutrition and hygiene. You can also make a 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 stalls in many towns and regions across the country.

All help 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 that bears fruit!

Through the presence and dedication of volunteers at the points of sale, Terre des hommes managed to collect almost CHF 800,000 in 2014. With this, Terre des hommes financed its 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. In addition, specialised medical treatment in Switzerland was also provided to sick children who couldn't be treated in their country.

The traditional orange sale, which Terre des hommes has been organising for over 50 years, gives passers-by the opportunity to donate 3 Swiss francs for an orange, thus taking the first step towards curing a child's illness.

Examples of what Terre des hommes can finance through the sale of oranges:
• one orange @ CHF 3: one medical examination
• three oranges @ CHF 9: safe drinking water for two weeks
• five oranges @ CHF 15: five balanced meals
• ten oranges @ CHF 30: two weeks' hospital treatment
