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 as our International charity partner we have supported Save the Children, Pump Aid, Opportunity International, ORBIS, Action Against Hunger, funding projects in Malawi, Zimbabwe, China, Indonesia, and other countries. In the London office we have additionally worked with Fairbridge, Thames21, ParalympicsGB, and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. In 2012 we raised over £200,000 for charity.
Hogan Lovells are currently working with Action Against Hunger/ACF International until December 2013 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 helps to:
- Provide treatment and nutritional support to over 4,000 severely malnourished children over a 12 month period
- Run an in-patient therapeutic feeding centre
- 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
New charity partnerships for the 2014-2016 period will be announced during December 2013.
