Our matched giving campaign, Touch, is a fundraising commitment designed to advance the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals. Touch is an inclusive scheme which promotes employee engagement through a firmwide consultation. We support a local not-for-profit in each of the countries where we work, as well as supporting an international not-for-profit on a global level.
Since the inception of Touch we have raised over £415,000 and have worked with Save the Children, Pump Aid, and Opportunity International, funding projects in Malawi, China, Indonesia, and other countries.
Hogan Lovells will be working with Action Against Hunger/ACF International over the next two years to raise funds to support ACF’s intensive feeding program in Monrovia, Liberia. After recovering from 14 years of violence and civil war, Liberia has been relatively peaceful for nearly seven years. However, the destruction of facilities and infrastructure during the war has severely reduced the functioning of the government departments, public services, and subsequently people’s access to these basic services.
Our fundraising will help to:
- Provide treatment and nutritional support to over 4,000 severely malnourished children over a 12 month period
- Run an in-patient therapeutic feeding center
- Fund 7 out-patient treatment programs
- Support the Ministry of Health via technical support and training until it becomes self-sufficient and skilled enough to take over the treatment and prevention of malnutrition by itself
