Accessing Warp It from overseas

Donations to charity, both in the UK and abroad, from the Warp It community has reached £4,713,807 and continues to rise.

Thousands of items such as office furniture, fixtures and fittings, soft furnishings, catering and kitchen equipment, office stationery and consumables, uniforms, lab equipment, and medical equipment, have been distributed for reuse to charities, schools, social enterprises, and community groups.

Many of these are in the UK and an increasing number are located overseas.
This includes the Sylvia Lanka Foundation (SLF), the Kori Development Project, and Health Care Relief Charity (Health Care for Africa).

Much of the donations are linked with assisting rural hospitals and education or healthcare initiatives.

The Sylvia Lanka Foundation, which provides food, shelter, education and medical aid, is ne charity that has used Warp It to great success. The international charity has distributed essential furniture among rural hospitals abroad with donations sourced from the Warp It community. This has included birthing beds, cots, bedside cupboards, tables, and lockers that could no longer be used by NHS Trusts.

Similarly, The Kori Development Project, which transforms the lives of girls and women in Sierra Leone by giving them access to education, has furnished schools with donations sourced from Warp It. The primary and secondary schools lacked essential resources, including desks, filing cabinets, and classroom chairs, so pupils used bricks to work on while sitting on the hard floor. Partnering with Warp It allowed them to secure furniture and equipment otherwise heading to landfill and improve the learning environment for school pupils.
