Due to shipping costs and regulations, we do not ship clothing, school items or books to Nepal. Also when traveling to Nepal, bringing these types of items is not necessary. The cost to buy items in Nepal is much cheaper than it is to ship them or bring them from the USA, Canada or Europe. If you wish to make a donation to purchase items, this is greatly needed and appreciated.
You may do so by visiting our gift shop, or please click on the donate button below for all donation options.
We accept in-kind donations of new or lightly used (no holes or stains) children’s clothing (baby to teens), especially children’s winter coats. We also send books, craft and children’s activity items to remote Inuit and First Nations communities in Nunavut, NW Territories, and some communities in N. Ontario and Quebec.
If you wish to drop of donations in Oshawa, please contact us at help @ org4peace (dot) org. In some cases pick up may be arranged in the Durham region, but please understand that we are a non-profit operated by volunteers.
However, it is much better to donate funds instead so that specific needed items that we already have, can be shipped.
If you wish to ship directly to a school, women’s shelter, charity thrift shop or other charitable organization in the north, please contact us for a specific address and their needs.

We collect new and lightly used (no stains, no holes) seasonal clothing, unused and unopened toiletries, baby items, books for children of all ages including teens, and toys. We collect these items for the women and children at local women’s shelters.
Every year we also sponsor families for Christmas. The new items that are purchased for this program usually include winter jackets, hats/mitts/scarves, kitchen and bathroom (home) items, and a few books, toys and/or games for the children in the family.
In 2014, we sponsored a single mom and her 11 year old son. We also donated new, unwrapped toys to Interval House in Toronto, and knit wool hats and gloves to the Red Door shelter also in Toronto.
In 2015, we sponsored a single mom and her 8 month old son.
In 2016, we donated new toys to many families in Igloolik, Nunavut.
