Taxback.com joined forces with the International Orphanage Development Programme (IODP) to give the gift of play to thousands of children orphaned by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
Recognising that play is an integral part of a child’s development, a scheme was launched to provide 12,000 footballs for the children in Haiti.
The footballs were recently distributed through Concern and other non-Government Organsations working with children in camps, schools and orphanages throughout Haiti. The institutions chosen were all involved in children’s education or sport.
Many of these institutions have never had toys so the footballs are an enormous novelty and something that the children have got a lot of joy and psychological benefit from. The taxback.com donation was made from The Taxback Group Corporate Social Responsibility fund. This fund aims to bring relief and happiness to disadvantaged children throughout the world by bringing them the gift of play.
